RETURNING TO CHURCH
The Archdiocese is looking at ways to help us return to Church.
ABOUT OUR CHURCHES
Welcome to our newly designed web-site. It will develop over the coming weeks as and when time allows. I hope you will find the information here useful. Our two parishes are still working as two separate parishes but there is much in common, and much co-operation in various projects.
You will find details here of Mass times and services, prayer groups, parish groups, sacramental programmes etc.
If you need any more information you can call Anne on 0151 924 3651 / 07840502315 and Fr Martin on 0151 924 2101 / 07710247633.
There is good news - after being closed for 3 months, we now have permission for limited opening of some of our churches ….. for private prayer only to begin with. This started on Monday 22nd June;
St Helen’s will be open: Mondays 10 am to 12 noon, Wednesdays 1pm to 3pm, Saturdays 3pm to 5pm.
The only other church opening in our Pastoral Area is Our Lady Star of the Sea, which will be open Tuesdays 5 pm to 7 pm and Saturdays 11 am to 1 pm.

Everyone is welcome at St Helen's and at St Joseph's. We look forward to meeting you.

The Liturgy of the Word with Children is an established liturgical activity in both parishes. Known as Little Church, our leaders share and discuss God's word with the children, in a way they can understand, in their own welcoming space. The children gather together after the greeting, and the priest sends them out to their place of worship with the leader; it ends with the children returning to the church for the Offertory Procession. Within Little Church, the children respond to the word with discussion and varied, creative activities.
Little Church at St Joseph’s Church was founded by Margaret Ferrari more than 15 years ago. From small beginnings it has become an important and vibrant part of the parish. The Children’s Liturgy takes place at the beginning of Sunday morning 11.00 am Mass each week, and has a “Tiny Church” section for the under 5's too.
Little Church at St Helen's was established over 25 years ago by Cath Davies. Through the years, there have been many leaders who have all contributed their talents to the thriving team, and the parish has been involved in many fundraising and community activities launched by the team and the children. Little Church takes place within 9.45 am Mass most Sundays of the year, apart from Sunday Children's Masses and during the school Summer holidays.
For more information about Little Church please come to either Church just before Mass when services resume, or email.
