Creation of New Parish

The aforementioned proposed pastoral reorganization is the division of the existing Parish of the Holy Cross, Shrewsbury into two parishes: Parish of the Holy Cross (Shrewsbury) and the new Parish of St Peter's, Shrewsbury.

Please study the letter from the Bishop of Lichfield and the accompanying notes and map.
