Parish of Saint Catherine of Alexandria

Welcome to the Parish of Saint Catherine of Alexandria here in Lydiate.

Our Parish comprises the churches of Our Lady’s and St. Gregory the Great, and we’re proud of our two Parish Primary Schools; St. Gregory the Great and St. John Bosco. Our Parish community was established in 2018 under the title of St. Catherine due to the historic presence of the Catholic Community in these parts and directly symbolised in the monument of Saint Catherine’s Chapel.

As a community, we strive to live out the Gospel in our day-to-day lives, inspired by our community celebrations of Mass and other forms of prayer. We believe that it is because He loved us first that we are able to love one another, and so, as an outward-looking community, we see our purpose as we meet Christ in our neighbour and support the local community in whatever ways we can.

We have launched our website early in light of the growing concerns around the outbreak of COVID-19 and the many anxieties that people may be feeling. Conscious of the self-isolation that some people are undertaking, the increased social distancing that we are being asked to accept and the loneliness that many of us may be experiencing, we wanted to use this website as a platform for news, information and an opportunity for people to participate in live celebrations of Mass and other liturgical prayers.

We will be using all types of social media to reach out to everyone across the community. We will keep them updated with relevant information and links for support. You can use the link to access Our Lady's online services.
