A group of people in Caton and Brookhouse is working together to support people fleeing from the war in Ukraine. You can find out more from their Facebook page:
Many local people are volunteering to be hosts and, on Saturday 30th April, there will be an opportunity to meet other hosts, donate items that may be useful to host families or their guests, and find out more about the project from Anna and Maciek Dobra, the couple who set up the group. They will be opening up the new Support Hub for Ukraine in the Brookhouse Methodist Church building on Brookhouse Road.
If you have things to donate, this is the link to the page where people are requesting and offering things.
St Mary’s Catholic Church, Hornby
St Mary’s Catholic Church in Hornby is the home of our Parish Priest, Father Michael Docherty. It’s the oldest, but smallest, of our three churches.
St Joseph’s Catholic Church, Kirkby Lonsdale
St Joseph’s Catholic Church in Kirkby Lonsdale is tucked away in Back Lane, behind the Market Square. It’s well worth the search!
Our Lady Immaculate Catholic Church, Caton
Our Lady Immaculate Catholic Church in Caton is a chapel of ease for the Hornby parish. It’s sometimes called the Railway Church, not just because it’s in Station Road.
