The Catholic Churches in the Lune ValleyWelcome to the Catholic Parishes of St Mary, Hornby and St Joseph, Kirkby Lonsdale
Mass after 19 July
Although Covid restrictions are generally being lifted on 19 July, infection rates in our area are, at the moment quite high. To keep everyone safe, and in consideration of the guidance given by the Bishops of England and Wales, we are going to continue with our current safe practices for the time being: you must register your attendance when you come in, use hand sanitiser, wear a face covering in Church, and keep at least 2 metres’ distance from anyone not in your household or “bubble”.
We will continue to refrain from offering the Chalice or the Sign of Peace.
If you are isolating or shielding, you can still join us for Mass on a Saturday evening via Zoom. We will be delighted to see you. Simply click on the large blue button below any time after 5:30 and you’ll be able to join us.
A group of parishioners meets on Zoom to pray the Holy Rosary every Wednesday at 6:00 pm. You are warmly invited to join us, (click on the blue button above) either to participate or simply to listen. Please try to join the Zoom meeting at 5:50 pm.
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.
