Welcome to the Holy Family Catholic Church, Swindon!
We are a Catholic Community inspired by the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph.

Parish Priest's Message
Nothing has prepared the world to face the unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic. It has been a moment of reflection as we recollect and focus more on what is most important. This wave of painful reality of Corona Virus has caused so much anxiety, discomfort, change in our lifestyle, attitude to life and sadly, some deaths. However, it is not entirely a hopeless situation since we can all play our roles to stop the further spread of this virus and equally offer to help in other specialized ways we could.
On our part as Christians, Religious men and women, including the non-religious who at least, are guided by ethical principles, it is time to allow our common humanity to shine forth. Fortunately and unfortunately, in moments like this the best and the worst of the human person is seen. Though we may be distant from each other, let us be spiritually connected in turning this painful moment into prayer, sacrifice and generosity that characterizes our calling as Christians and our natural inclination as humans.
In this period of lent, we are once again drawn to be mindful of the suffering and pain of being human; to go beyond ours and reach out to those who face more challenges. Love made concrete in self-sacrifice can make a huge difference now more than ever!
