Welcome to Holy Family Online

Holy Family Parish is a part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Salford. Founded in 1954, with Mass celebrated initially in Balderstone Hall, the church was completed in 1955 to accommodate approximately 450 worshippers.

In 2006 the Church saw further building works undertaken, in order to reflect more appropriately the needs of the future and to provide better accessibility and facilities. The worship space is now smaller, with seating for about 250, and a new "Family Room" in the back has enabled us to develop more strongly a sense of community which is, we believe, one of our greatest strengths. Since this building work was completed, we have been able to extend a warm welcome to people with disabilities, and we hope that they, too, can feel a real sense of belonging to the Family of God gathered here.

The parish serves the areas around Kirkholt and Turf Hill, and runs south as far as the Oldham boundary. There is car parking within the grounds, and the large garden includes a Grotto in honour of Our Lady, based upon the shrine at Lourdes.
