Local Pastoral Area


Every parish in the Diocese of Shrewsbury has been linked with some of its neighbours to form Local Pastoral Areas.


Blessed John Henry Newman Parish is in the Local Pastoral Area of South Warrington and Lymm together with St Monica's at Appleton and St Winefride's at Lymm.


Cooperation between these parishes is coordinated by a Leadership Team comprising of clergy and laity and religious. The Team meets each half term to review, discuss and plan for joint projects.
