A few notices for your attention...

CAN WE ASK ?... 

Do you remember the good causes, and the regular appeals for all sorts of help that we had in church? The retiring collections for Cafod fast days, and the priests' training fund? We might have thought there were a few too many, but there's no doubt that they needed our support and our funds.  FIND OUT MORE

You may not be able to give financially, but there may be other ways you can help, like donating your time, or your prayers, which are more needed than ever in all sorts of ways. We want to thank all our parishioners for all the ways that they make us a community, looking after each other, and beyond...

  • Offertory Envelopes
    Thank you to all those who donate via offertory envelopes. The new financial year envelopes can be collected safely from the back of Church. Could I also suggest that you give some thought to changing your weekly contributions from cash to standing order. It is a real benefit to the parish and much easier to administer. Please contact the parish office for more information.

  • Gift Aid
    If you already have a standing order, or are thinking of making one, also please consider the possibility of GiftAiding your donations, if you are able to do so. Kathy and John Bowers have very kindly agreed to administer our Gift Aid scheme on behalf of the Parish, and you can find out more information HERE or by contacting the Parish Office.

  • There's a Free Job Club being run in conjunction with Christians against Poverty, at St John's church Ainsdale. If you think you could benefit please have a look...

  • In the past months we had a push to collect used stamps for Christ the King school. This closed recentlyt, and we have received a great letter of thanks from Luke Hart, year 11 Head Boy.
    "Hello Holy Family Community!
    A huge thank you from the staff and pupils at Christ the King.
    The student council really appreciated your many stamp donations for the Royal National Institute for the Blind.
    For anyone wondering, the bags of stamps get sent to the local RNIB office and get weighed.
    For every kilogram of stamps, £20 is raised for the charity. It is a brilliant way to raise money!
    By collecting stamps you're genuinely helping to break down the barriers that stop people with sight loss from living live to the fullest.....so thanks a million!"
  • We've got copies of the Archdiocese of Liverpool Directory in stock. They have been sealed up individually, so you can be sure they are 'clean' when you take them out. The cost is a very reasonable £3.50 per copy. Lots of interesting information inside... Let us know if you'd like one, and put the money into a small envelope with your name and address and drop off at the Presbytery, We'll try and get it/them to you as soon as we can.

  • We've had a lovely letter from Louise Morton, headteacher of Holy Family Primary School, thanking us for our support and donations of gift vouchers etc. Please carry on donating as the crisis is likely to be with us for some time yet. CLICK HERE to read the letter.

  • Another letter we received and were impressed with was from our local MP Damien Moore. CLICK HERE to read it.
  • The Ecumenical Pentecost Service was again on-line this year. The service was built around the Peace Doves installation at Liverpool Anglican Cathedral and the theme of the Service was ‘the Spirit at Work in the World.’ 

    It can be seen on the two Cathedrals’ YouTube channels and here are the links: Metropolitan Cathedral (RC)

Funerals at Holy Family

If you wish to hold a funeral service or a Requiem Mass at Holy Family Church, please see our list of frequently asked questions. In the first instance please contact our Parish Office. Because trained volunteer stewards must be present to ensure the requirements are met, it is not always possible to be as flexible as previously, but we will do our best to accommodate you.


Do you know someone in hospital, or about to go into hospital?
