St Hubert’s RC Church at Dunsop Bridge has been amalgamated into the Catholic parish of Our Lady of the Valley.
The rural church joined the parish three weeks ago, when Father John Corcoran met with parishioners. The previous priest of St Hubert’s, Father John Chaloner will continue to live in the church’s presbytery and will say 10 am mass on Sundays.
On Sunday, September 6th, Father Corcoran will say the Sunday mass, which will then be followed by a meeting for all parishioners at the school.
Father Corcoran commented: “The parish of Our Lady of the Valley now comprises three Catholic communities separated by hill and moor but one in faith, heart and spirit and we are looking forward to using their combined resources to be more effective witnesses to the joy of the Gospel.”
