Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water… (John 7:38)

Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish


We the people of God of Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish, Westhoughton, respond to God’s call to:

Reflect the light and love of God the Creator, Mother and Father of us all; the infinite mercy and compassion of Jesus Christ; the empowering grace of the Holy Spirit…

Support our welcoming community of diverse persons and families; our active and full participation in
liturgies and celebrations; our spiritual growth in scripture, sacraments and community…

Commit to love, serve and challenge one another; to sustain the Earth, our neighbours near and far, the poor, the marginalised; to be healing instruments of justice and peace…

Safeguarding the future of Catholic schools.

Do you support Catholic schools and the right of Catholics to send their children to them? Then we need to make your voice heard.
The Government is making a critical decision on whether to overturn the admissions cap which prevents Catholic schools from allowing all Catholic pupils to attend. They have acknowledged that this policy discriminates against Catholics and promised to abandon it, now we need you to tell them not to U-turn on their promise to Catholics.

Visit http://catholicnews.org.uk/education-cap or search for ‘Catholic Education’ in your search engine to write to the Government and urge them to drop their policy which bans new Catholic schools.


The Catholic Education Service (CES) represents the Bishops' national education policy in relation to the 2300 Catholic schools, colleges and university colleges which the Church is responsible for across England and Wales.
