HOLY FAMILY PARISH PASTORAL TEAM

The pastoral care and activity in our Parish is well established and extensive. Under the guidance of Fr Kevin Lowry a number of the parishioners are involved in various roles and we hope everyone will feel they can join a team in any area which is appropriate to them.

'Little Church'

Takes place at the 10.45 Mass during term time. Once a month the Sunday Mass is a "Children's Mass".

Club Day Committee

Club Day Committee Club Day has been a tradition in Freckleton for well over a hundred years. It involves a Procession of Witness by the Churches in the village and takes place on the third Saturday in June. This is followed by a weekend of sports and fun when the whole community comes together to celebrate.

Holy Family Church has a Club Day Committee which co-ordinates the annual procession. The planning starts March/April and involves designing and preparing the three floats. The Play School, Primary School and Youth of Holy Family organise an individual float with help from the committee, together with co-ordinating the banners and other walkers and making sure everything runs smoothly on the day.

We are always open to new people joining the Committee and fresh ideas are most welcome. Help with the float preparation or walking with the children on the day itself all make the day special for the whole community, If you would like to be involved in this historic tradition please contact Helen McDowell on 01772 633308/07960 300127.
Youth Group

The youth group is open to any boy or girl in year 7 or above.

We go places, and do things. So far we have been to Manchester United, Scuba Diving, Snow Tubing, Up a Climbing Wall and on retreat with the Bishop – just to mention a few.

We also help in the local community by raising money for CAFOD, manning the water station for the Freckleton Half Marathon, Serving on the altar, and the older ones help in the Children’s Liturgy as
y oung leaders.

We all get on well together. We really help each other out.

If you would like to join us contact Catherine Potter on 01772 493475.

Sally's Angels

The Club was formed 11 years ago as a group for girls aged 8-16 years and is open to young people regardless of race, religion or creed. It offers a variety of indoor and outdoor activities from arts, crafts and cookery to visits to the Chill Factore, Sponsored Walks through the Illuminations, Country Walks to Beacon Fell and Treasure Hunts round Lytham. All these activities provide an opportunity for the girls to acquire a diversity of skills within a Christina ethos, as well as developing values such as commitment, responsibility, loyalty and friendship.

The Club meets on the first Monday of each month, so please come along and join us. Contact Christina King on 01772 634297 or Claire Chesworth on 01253 737210
