St Wilfrid’s is an active Catholic parish. in the heart of Preston, served by the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), with a history going back over 200 years. As Parish Priest I am delighted to welcome you to St Wilfrid’s.  This website gives you details of the many activities of our dedicated parishioners as well as the history of this church.  Please contact us for more information or if there is anything we can do.

Wishing you every blessing.

New Carpet in the Main Room of the Parish Centre

In preparation for new carpet the wood blocks need to be lifted along with any adhesive under them, and the same with the old carpet. Until the job begins it is difficult to know how easy or difficult this will be and, therefore, how long it may take.

Once the existing coverings are lifted the floor will be screeded to level it. Then it will be ready for the new carpet.

We will endeavour to keep the Parish Centre in use during these works but there will be some necessary disruption for which your patience and co-operation is asked.

Whilst the wood blocks are being lifted that section of the room will be cordoned off and out of bounds until the floor is even and safe to walk on again. 

These works may mean your group has to make some temporary adjustments to how it runs.

 Thank you for your understanding.

 Fr C Pedley SJ

 Parish Priest

 NB The work is scheduled to begin on Monday 27 November.
