St John's Catholic Primary School

To Live in Love

Our Parish 


The Catholic Community of Skelmersdale is served by three churches and five primary schools, alongside a high school. As one parish we strive to build a living community of family and friends. Together we try to love one another and put into practice the way Jesus taught us to live. We believe that belonging to the Church enriches lives on so many different levels and in so many different ways.

Our Parish Priest is Fr Kenny Hyde.

Advent 2023 - The Travelling Crib

This year we are introducing a new tradition...The Travelling Crib. This is to help us remember the journey that Mary & Joseph made to Bethlehem, and as a family take time to stop and think about the true meaning of Christmas.

We hope it will bring families together in prayer and help parents/carers in supporting and developing the Spirituality of their children.

Advent  - Reverse Advent Calendar

For a number of years, St John's has organised a 'Reverse Advent calendar'; an opportunity to give something instead of receiving.

Throughout December, we ask for donations of food and toiletries for our local St Vincent de Paul Society. We always receive lots of donations which are distributed to people and families in need.
