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

A regular Mass attendee at Holy Family, Matthew Hurst has sent us a request:

'I am collecting stamps for guide dogs/RNIB so can you please ask the people of the parish to save their stamps and bringStamps them to church and leave them in the sacristy or give them to Fr Kevin to be passed on when I come to Mass.
Hope this is okay
I hope you have a lovely weekend'
Matthew 

Looking through my own mail recently, I am struck by the reduction in the amount of it, compared to a few years back and also how few items actually have a stamp these days, as opposed to a printed form of payment. So let's see if we can collect as many as we can for Matthew and his good cause...

You may not be able to give financially, but there are 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...

We are looking for tech savvy members of Holy Family who might be able to help us use our technology during Masses and services. Now we have internet and projectors, each weekend Mass is projected, which means some work on the computer. This applies to funerals also.

  • 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...
  • 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, especially with the finishing of the furlough scheme, and the drastic increases in gas prices.

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?
