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

As a lovely footnote to the explanation of the Deanery, we send many congratulations to Fr. Dave who was installed as a Canon on Tuesday 8th November 2022 at a Capitular Mass at 12.15 at the Metropolitan Cathedral in Liverpool.
Others who were installed as Canons at the Mass were:
Fr. Conor Stainton Polland
Fr. John Gormand &
Fr. Kevin McLoughlin
Please keep them all in your prayers.
