Parish History


Welcome to the Parish of the Holy Family, Mossend in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Motherwell.

Our Parish was first established in 1868, with the opening of the church-school building by Parish Priest Rev. Father Milne.

Since it's foundation our parish has both grown and decreased in size.  However in recent years a fair number of young families have taken up residence in the parish, giving us new hope of life in the future.

We hope this web site it maybe of interest to you. Whether you know our parish well and are just looking for further information, or it has been a while since last you visited the church, or you may just be surfing and have found us by accident - either way, we hope you find something of use to yourself.

Lastly, we pray that we may face that future in the same spirit as our forefathers confident that, with God's continued help and our efforts, his work in Mossend may be accomplished for many years to come.

Caritas Scheme

This Year Holy Family Mossend has eleven sixth year students participating in the Caritas scheme.

Each participant is required to give twenty hours service to the parish between now and next summer. In the new year, the group will turn their attention to at least one fundraising event such as a prize bingo or coffee morning for one of the charities supported by the parish.

Our choir recorded a demonstration CD of music used in this parish which will be taught at the forthcoming Diocesan Music Workshop. This ‘Demonstration CD’ is just that and is not by any means meant to be a professional recording. It was simply put together at a recent choir practice using the choir members who were available on that particular evening.

St. Andrew’s Celebration

The annual sponsored walk, has been completed by two

parishioners. All monies raised will help to purchase

Christmas presents for about 600 children in Fr Peter's

care. Fr Peter has told me that because of a big

reduction in donations food parcels will need to be included

in the presents for families in the shanty towns.

Sponsor money should be handed to the passkeepers.

Sponsor envelopes are in the church porch.



The Parish Centre is at present being re-slated courtesy of Viridor Credits Environmental Company who awarded us a grant of around £66,000 to carry out the project.  The project will be completed in two phases. Phase one will be completed by the end of August. Phase two will begin in October and completed within the month.
