Welcome!

Welcome to Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish, Westhoughton!

These pages provide an opportunity to a look at what is going on here as well as a way of communicating information. This parish is alive and active and you are welcome to be a part of it!

Central to our life are the Sunday celebrations of the Eucharist which are well attended, family friendly and have a variety of people exercising the different ministries within the Church. From this flow many activities to help us live out the words at the end of our Sunday celebration to, “Go in Peace to Love and Serve the Lord“.

New ideas are being implemented whilst trying to ensure that what is good is not lost. There are close links with our primary & secondary schools, Sacred Heart & St Joseph’s, as well as with the local community.

This parish has a rich heritage and tradition, a diverse background, a sense of vitality and celebration underpinned with faith, and a hope-filled future.

The centre of this community is Christ Himself, and there is a place here for you!
