My great delight to sign this guest book
I knew Father Pat.... A very long time ago when he was at St Monica's in Bootle...at a very painful time for me and my family..
My husband George died from Lung Cancer, in 1976, Father Pat was helpful and very supportive.
It is a great delight to me to renew a precious friendship.
Greetings and Gods blessing on all for 2016

Claudia Feichtner

Dear all

My name ist Claudia Feichtner. I am the granddaughter of Rosalia Reaves. Rosalia was the mother of my mother who died in the year 1982 when I was 14 years old.

I live in Switzerland now.

I got a photo album which was in the ownership of Rosalia Reaves.

Looking for my roots I found the report about the lady’s grotto my grandma built.

I am thinking about to visit St.Judes and to have a look on the grotto.

Do you know someone who knew Rosalia in UK?

For the past 22 years I have been visiting St Jude’s to attend the annual anniversary Mass, celebrated by Canon McNally, for the repose of the soul of our dear brother, Fr Thomas Delaney who was your Parish Priest before his untimely death in June 1989.  Fr Pat always makes the ‘Delaney family’ feel so welcome – he is truly a marvellous Priest and we are very grateful to him.

I visited your Website for the first time today and am well impressed!  It is a credit to your Parish and to those responsible for its production and maintenance and it was nice to see the tribute to Fr Delaney in the Archives. 

Our three Church Community is about to explore Website provision and I will be recommending that the Team responsible take a look at your fantastic Website to gain some inspiration – congratulations and well done!!

201 5/05/08 JACQUELINE WHITTAKER Wigan

Hello.....St Jude's Website.....
My maiden name was Jacqueline Blake - for the past 26 years my married name has been Whittaker.
I have recently come across your website whilst showing my 10 year old daughter my old haunts....
It's a fantastic web site and has given me some ideas for the website of my own church.....St Peters, Newton-le-Willows.  It was great to reminisce........
I started schooling at St Josephs Primary School (Mrs Reddington Headmistress and Miss Clough Infant Teacher) and can remember what it was like eating school
dinners in the 'Nissan Huts' and worshipping at St Joseph's (where my father James Blake-deceased-was an altar boy).   My daughter is astounded that I had to use outside toilets at the school and can't believe I used chalk and boards and quill pens - she refers to them as the 'old days' - well I suppose to her they are.  From St Josephs Junior School I went to the Grammar School near to the Tesco Superstore site for a short while before it shut down and was moved to St Thomas More.  I have fond memories of Sister Julie, Sister Rose and Mr Wilde at both schools' and Father Tobin at St Judes' Church. I have been looking at your photograph links and it made me smile that things haven't changed that much.....the confirmation breakfast photo's of 2006/7 were similar to those taken of me and my siblings David, Susan and Andrea Blake in the 1970's. 
On a rare visit to Wigan I was sad to see that St Thomas More School had been knocked down and all that was left standing was the music room door - I suppose time and tide wait for no man......Your website has prompted me to return to St Judes' for a visit and I will look forward to worshipping in and showing my daughter the beautiful church of St Jude that I took for granted as a child. 
God bless to you all.....
Jacqui Whittaker

Very Rev Canon, A wonderful Easter Message, The sound was clear and precise,I celebrated Good Friday [Stations of the cross plus Veneration of same] and Easter Sunday

Yes Christ had risen in a Church said to have been built by St Paul himself in Northern Cyprus.All the services were done by the Benidictine Monks,It was amazing that in a Muslim country we had some 60 or more worshipers at each service.Thank you for your time in preparing and reading out the Easter Message.

Albert.

Angela Cunningham - Wigan

I have just come across your excellent website.  Congratulations to all who have contributed and to the mastermind of the site. I have lots of old photos of St Joseph’s especially of the Whit walks and the operatic society productions in the 1920s and 1930s.

Our family was very much involved in parish life from its inception.  Our grand father Joseph Cunningham was one of the first babies to be baptized by Fr Lamon in the new parish of St Joseph’s.  He later became caretaker of the Elementary School in Hodson Street.  He directed the operatic productions which were performed in the Parish Hall and he also took part in them together with his son Joseph and his daughter Peggy.

Our maternal grandfather, Walter Whittle began the SVP in the parish and organized the annual parish balls held at the Empress Hall.

Our dad, Joseph was the choir master and conducted the choir in four part Masses every Sunday at 11am.  We have a photo of him conducting the massed bands on the Market Square as everyone sang Faith of Our Fathers.

There is lots more I could tell you about the people of St Joseph’s.

192 21/12/06 "From your American family - the Colmans"

Merry Christmas!   Your Christmas message is lovely and also inspiring.  As I read it I could not help but reflect that sermons here in the USA  should be as good as your message .  Simple and thoughtful. We will have a lovely Christmas.  On the eve we will go to Stephanie's house to celebrate with Bernard's family.   We will probably go to midnight Mass at St. Patrick's.  Our St. Jude's has a 4:00 and a 10.   the early one mostly for the young and the later one will be too early for us. On Christmas Day, we will go to Freddie's house for dinner.  They have Glen's family and us(the newly weds too).   This has become our tradition.  I have about 20 here for our Thanksgiving in November.  Then, I have it easy.  Of course, I have to cook a small turkey for the 25th. Aunt Julia is ticking along, just the same as before but just a little deafer.         Merry Christmas!

191 4/12/06 ALBERT ECKERSLEY - Wigan

Dear Canon, Thank you for your inspiring Advent Message I hope many people log on to read it. It embraces all that we should be thinking about at this special time of preparation for the most outstanding event that the World has and will ever witness. The Birth of Our Saviour The Lord of the Universe and yet to show us how to be humble, chose to be Born in a Stable. Albert Eckersley.

You certainly earned this investiture, Fr. Pat. Nice to see Sr. Bernadette and her friend in the pictures. Has a lovely scarf.  She loves scarves.  When I look at you, think of my Dad;
you look so much like him and not related. Don't see the Carrs much. Tenant downstairs is  a Carr by marriage, but don't know who her husband was or is. Louise Carr Napoli passed away a few months ago. Only contact I had with her is her niece, Barbara Boznowski who lives in Medway Mass. Miss visiting Ann. She was special. Haven't visited Julie lately; her kids are very supportive.....Helen Kelley lives in the complex next door. Don't think she gets out often. Her daughter is very attentive, and they have a lovely daughter, Julie.

I just love it.in my time didnt have much of the old testament and studying it in my old age.we have functions periodically like agape. get tired of cooking sometimes. dont cook like this for myself. so in order to prepare for the liturgy wed and sat nites, the assigned team has to meet another nite. in some pictures you are using a cane. do you still use one. i need one but keep trucking. my back kills me; arthritis, have to have something to pay for my purification.

some americans resent it. but we are all products of immigrants. my maternal grandmother came from mayo. came to the us on a boat when she was 8 to live with her grandmother.
my maternal grandfather; records ust say he came fromi ireland. my paternal grandparents born in this country. used to walk to church in framingham from so natick mass.

181 30/1/06 Ian McLoughlin/Wigan I wondered if you can help me? I've noticed from my visits how vibrant your website is (congratulations!) and wondered if you had any knowledge or contact with the people behind the St Patrick's site? It seems to be dormant now, which is a real pity as I am very interested in this church and would love to kow more. Also there doesn't appear to be a site for St Mary's / St John's; is this due to there being no-one in the congregation willing or able to put the time and effort in?

As originally brought up in the Wigan area, I remember as a child going to Mass once or twice to St Joseph's (not our usual Parish.) Also remember the new St Jude's when first built, my best friend lived in Carr Lane which was very near to the Church. My cousin Molly Walsh\Fouracre belonged to St Joseph's and sang in the Wigan area for many years (I think she still does some charity singing). Brilliant sight, only wish I could have shared part of the "history". Bless you all.

I requested prayers from you that my Thyroid cancer would not come back. My last scan showed no change, which is good news. I go back on April 8 for the results of my thyroid globulin test, which is a tumour marker, I pray that the results will be favourable. So far everyone's prayers are being heard. I would like to pass on to you another story about the power of prayer.

I was searching for some confirmation of the validity of St. Jude with the Catholic Church. My son is Catholic (I taught in a Catholic school for 7 years though I never joined the church), he has been in a difficult medical situation and I've been praying to St. Jude as helper of the 'impossible" and "lost causes". I just wanted to make sure St. Jude is indeed sanctioned by the Catholic Church and that it is ok for me to ask for his intercedence. Nice website, wonderful invitation opening from Father Pat.

She has dedicated most of her free time to working extra curricular activities with her students. She sincerely loves children! Last school year she and I were pregnant at the same time.

Last May I contacted St Jude Parish for prayers for my recovery. I needed to be operated on for a 2nd time for thyroid cancer. at that time I was told there would be a possibility that I would lose my voice permantly. Not a good prospect. I asked for prayers for my successful operation. I was operated on on June 11. I did not lose my voice, and the surgeon indicated they got it all. July 28 I have to see a radiation oncologist because I have to have radioactive iodine treatment, a standard procedure.
