Please support our parish at this time

This time of pandemic is a testing time for many people, for many families at home and abroad. Our parish continues to offer spiritual and pastoral support in Heywood and beyond.

Our parish is funded entirely by people’s generous giving, especially at Sunday Mass. Without our churches being open for Mass, the Sunday income has dropped considerably. At the same time we have had our legally required Fire Detection and Alarm system fitted in church and presbytery, costing over £50 000.

If you are able to help us pay our bills and invest for the future, either as a one-off gift or as a regular donation, click on the links below to the Diocese of Salford website and follow the instructions for Our Lady and St. Joseph’s Parish, Heywood

We know it is a difficult time for many. We are, as a parish, a charity and we rely on your generosity. We appreciate all that you regularly give; we understand that, for many, times are more difficult and you may not be able to give; if you find yourself able to give us a little bit more at this time, we would be grateful.


God bless

Fr. Paul
