The Catholic Community of Skelmersdale is served by three churches and six schools. As one parish we strive to build a living community of family and friends. Together we try to love one another and put into practice the way Jesus taught us to live. We believe that belonging to the Church enriches lives on so many different levels and in so many different ways.
In this family of faith:
– Each person is valued
– Each person is welcomed
– Each person is loved
A warm welcome awaits you!
IN THE EVENT OF SNOW ON SATURDAY 31st JANUARY ...
If we have snow this weekend the 5:00 Mass at St Mary's will be transferred to St Richard's Church.
As you will know the slopes around St Mary's can become treacherous for cars and people -
and we would not want any accidents to happen.
