St John's is the Roman Catholic parish in the picturesque market town of Poulton-le-Fylde. The parish has served the local Catholic population since 1813, and the present Church was built in 1912.

Thanks to all those who accepted the invitation

I have been approached by so many people who have expressed their joy at the recent parish events! Was it the bishop? The Confirmation Rite? The weather? The food and drink? The music? The preparation and anticipation?

The reality is that this is what being God’s people together is about. As Bishop Paul was keen to remind us: “The Holy Spirit is a gift which changes us” – but only if we welcome the Spirit.

Thanks to all those who spent time and effort working together to make the day so special. The food came from everyone and was wonderful. Thanks to the welcomers who made visitors feel at home. Thanks to the musicians of various styles which were great. Thanks to the Confirmation candidates and families. Thanks to those who donated food, flowers and gazebos. Thanks to God for the weather and the Holy Spirit. Thanks, finally, to the bishop who did what he said he had come to do: encourage us in our Faith together.

Now we have to ponder what to celebrate in 2020 (as well as a new Parish Centre). Please join us.
