Our Deanery

The Archdiocese of Liverpool is made up of 141 parishes. Each parish is grouped with a number of other parishes. These groupings are called Deaneries. The parish of St Peter and St Michael is part of the Warrington and Widnes Deanery within the Liverpool Archdiocese.


Each Deanery is led by a Dean and in our Deanery, the Dean is Father Dave Heywood. Fr. Dave is parish priest at the parish of Blessed James Bell which amalgamated the parishes of St Benedict, St Oswald and St Mary into one and serves Warrington town centre, Orford and Padgate. 


Father Dave's newsletter from February this year, gives details of the deanery and how it is a result of the Pastoral Plan. You can see the entry in his newsletter here.


Fr. Dave also writes a blog which you can read here.
