The Mission of Our Lady and St Edward, Bolton, Lancashire has relocated its monthly services to a splendid and historic location in Central Bolton.
The Iron Church,Blackburn Road, Bolton, BL1 8DR a former Congregational Place of Worship, was last used for worship in 1990. Used since then as an Antiques centre and for 10 years empty and neglected it was recently relaunched as a bedroom furniture sales centre by Mr Jaz Singh assisted by his brother Laki. After an approach by the Mission's Priest in Charge, Fr Howard Marsh, Mr Singh very kindly made the Church's former vestry available to the Mission without Charge as a new basis for our work in that area. The Chapel is to be permanently established and in the near future services will increase to twice monthly celebrations.
The Bishop visited on the Vigil of Pentecost (Saturday 11th June) to celebrate Mass and preach. He also met with Mr Singh and thanked him for his generosity and also had a chance to look over the stock for sale in the main body of the Church
