A prayer for the NHS

God of healing and compassion,

we thank you for the establishment of the National Health Service,

and for the dedication of all who work in it:

give skill, sympathy and resilience to all who care for the sick,

and your wisdom to those engaged in medical research.

Strengthen all in their vocation through your Spirit,

that through their work many will be restored to health and strength;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Pray for all those who care for others

Lord Jesus, who healed the sick and gave them new life,

be with all carers and health professionals,

as they act as agents of your healing touch.

In desperate times, keep them strong yet loving;

and when their work is done,

be with them in their weariness and in their tears.


Southport and Ormskirk Hospital Memorial Service


The hospital chaplains, along with Dr Karen Groves and Dr Dominic Bray have recorded a short service which some parishioners may find helpful.  The service is usually held in church each year, and all who have had a bereavement through the hospital are invited.  In 2020 this was not possible.  


The service is aimed at all families who have suffered a bereavement particularly in the last 12 months.  It is acknowledged that there have been lots of bereavements that are not Covid related but families have been unable to grieve as they would have liked due to Covid.

Mass on the phone

For those who cannot get to church and have no internet connection,  you can still listen to the Mass in full on your phone. The Mass is provided free of charge, except for the local phone charge. It comes from Middlesborough Cathedral every Sunday. You phone this number: 01642 130 120 and you are connected to the Mass for that week. You can listen at any time of day or night
