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:
Each person is valued

– Each person is welcomed

– Each person is loved





A warm welcome awaits you!









do you need any help?

In these uncertain times we all need to help each other as much as we can.  We have set up our "Keep Calm and Carry On" page which we will update as quickly as we can with advice, prayers and especially contact details for anyone who needs help.

A message from Pope Francis

“Tonight before falling asleep think about when we will return to the street.
When we hug again, when all the shopping together will seem like a party.
Let’s think about when coffees will return to the bar, the small talk, the photos close to each other.
We think about when it will be all a memory but normalcy will seem an unexpected and beautiful gift.
We will love everything that has so far seemed futile to us.  Every second will be precious.
Swims at the sea, the sun until late, sunsets, toasts, laughter.
We will go back to laughing together.  Strength and courage.  See you soon!”
