Our Lady of Fatima Parish
Blackwood & Larkhall
Welcome to the website of the parish of Our Lady of Fatima.
The parish of Our Lady of Fatima is one of the newest parishes in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Motherwell, being founded in June 2019. The parish comprises of two churches, St Mary’s in Larkhall and Our Lady and St John’s Blackwood. Both churches have served the Catholic communities of Larkhall, Blackwood, Kirkmuirhill, Coalburn and Lesmahagow since the end of the nineteenth century.
Today the parish continues to proclaim the Gospel, the truths of the Catholic Faith and service of our brothers and sisters.
Unfortunately, we are restricted in the way we come together to worship as a parish community for the celebration of Holy Mass and the other Sacraments.
During this time of lock-down, our Parish Mass will be celebrated each day at 11.00am and will be live-streamed on the parish Facebook page, the link you will find at the bottom of this page.
If any member of our parish community is in danger of death, Fr Wyllie will visit to administer the Sacrament of the Sick (Last Rites) if the family request him to do so. For parishioners in Wishaw General, Hairmyres or Monklands University Hospitals please request the ward staff to contact the Catholic on-call chaplain who will visit patients who wish to see the priest or receive the Sacraments.
Months Minds and Anniversaries can be handed into either of the Parish Houses to be included in the Parish Bulletin. If you would like a Mass card or would like a Mass card signed, then please contact Fr Wyllie who will arrange a suitable time for you to come and collect the Mass card.
Unfortunately our churches are closed due to the restrictions placed on us by the Scottish Government. We will have a period of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on a Wednesday morning from 10.30am until 11.00am live-streamed on the parish Facebook page. On other days, the live-stream will begin five minutes before Mass begins to allow parishioners the opportunity for some private prayer before the altar.
