Holy Family church
Christus resurrexit! Jesus is risen!

We wish everyone a happy, holy and blessed Eastertide...

Thank you for just taking the time to visit our Parish...

Mass times for this coming week can be seen HERE. 

Please note that face masks, hand sanitisation and social distancing measures are still in operation.

The picture at the top of the page is one of a series of posters made by the young students at Holy Family Primary School. Every year group was involved and large posters are displayed inside the church around the walls, with actual size laminated versions in the small garden outside the church front door. 

Eastertide at Holy Family. Have a look...

A few notices for your attention...

CAN WE ASK ?... (or Money - always a difficult subject!)

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.

You won't be surprised to learn that they still need us ...you...more than ever now that face to face requests are more difficult in this situation. Please try and help as much as you can, have a go at online giving, which is fairly easy to do. You will always have your favourite cause, and they will be really grateful if you make the effort for them. And please don't forget Holy Family Parish at the same time. Our income has also been hard hit. We're starting a new page with links to some of the more well known causes, and we hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to help them, as much as you can. They will be really grateful, and so will we... FIND OUT MORE

  • Offertory Envelopes
    Thank you to all those who donate via offertory envelopes. The new financial year envelopes are ready for you to collect safely from the back of Church from next weekend. 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.

  • 4th May 2021 - This marks the Day of Prayer for Victims and Survivors of Abuse.
    This date was chosen by our Bishops’ Conference and is an initiative welcomed by the Holy Father. The Catholic Bishops of England & Wales have a range of resources to support and enable parishes to mark this day. CLICK HERE for more information. Please pray with us to keep these victims and survivors in our hearts and minds, especially during this Eastertide. Thank you...

  • We've just heard about 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 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.

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?
