Welcome to Our Catholic Churches in the Lune Valley
Welcome to the catholic parishes of St Mary, Hornby and St Joseph, Kirkby Lonsdale. Please note the new schedule of Masses in the parishes:
Zoom: BT have fixed the broadband and the Mass at Caton will be Zoomed on Sunday. Please join us by clicking the blue button above.
|Saturday vigil||Caton||6:00 pm|

|Sunday||Caton and Zoom||11:00 am|
|Thursday||Kirkby Lonsdale||6:30 pm|

The Sunday Mass at Hornby has now been moved to Caton, as Autumn begins and celebrating in the garden at Hornby becomes impracticable, because of the weather. . We will offer Mass via Zoom from Caton. You can join in this Mass by clicking the blue ‘join the service’ button. The parish host will be available 30 minutes before the Sunday Mass to welcome you and give you access.
Please pray for those of our parishes who are sick, those who have recently died, and those whose anniversaries are at this time. Read about our Rosary prayers, our plans for Christmas and our support for CCAFOD and the Olive Branch.

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.
