Welcome to our website. We encourage you to explore our online resources.
In place of the celebration of thanksgiving we all had planned, Fr Peter and Fr Graham have recorded a message for today with Fr Gerry, the Salesian Provincial.
Bishop William and Canon Stephen have also sent a message of thanks and some encouraging news for the future. Please see the message in full after this video:
Listen to Cardinal Vincent Nichols being interviewed on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme on 14 May about how Catholic Churches can be safely re-opened for private prayer as the UK government eases its lockdown restrictions to combat the spread of COVID-19.
What's in a name? In our case, quite a lot! Our Lady Help of Christians, the title of our parish, links us with many churches throughout the world who have the same dedication. This title of Mary the mother of Jesus, was very dear to St John Bosco the founder of the Salesians who cared for the parish until 2020. Wherever the title of Our Lady Help of Christians is found there is a good chance that there is a Salesian connection somewhere.
The acronym OLHOC Cowley is a handy way for us to label our presence on the web. May the guiding Help of Christians continue to help us navigate whether offline or on.
