Welcome

   

St Richard Consecration

 

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:
Welcome
Each person is valued

– Each person is welcomed

– Each person is loved

 

 

 

 

A warm welcome awaits you!
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION!!

A couple of our parishioners have tested positive for Covid-19 and, after consultation with the Archdiocese, we are temporarily closing St Mary's church.  This move is an ultra cautious precaution to ensure the safety of our parishioners, but in these difficult times we would rather be safe than sorry.  If you have been to St Mary's recently there is no need to worry as all close contacts with the parishioners who have tested positive have already been contacted.   WE WILL BE REOPENING THE CHURCH ON SUNDAY 8th NOVEMBER FOR PARISHIONERS TO JOIN US ONCE AGAIN.


Live Streaming of Masses


We will be live streaming Masses this week from St Richard's (no congregation allowed I'm afraid) as follows:-

Saturday 31st October at 5:00pm
Sunday 1st November at 10:00am
Monday 2nd November at 10:00am

Masses at St Mary's will restart on Sunday 8th November at 10:00am when we will reopen our doors for parishioners to join us.

In addition to these live streams on Wednesday 4th November and Friday 6th November there will be a live streaming of Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament followed by a simple Benediction and concluding with Holy Rosary from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.
