St John's is the Roman Catholic parish in the picturesque market town of Poulton-le-Fylde. The parish has served the local Catholic population since 1813, and the present Church was built in 1912.

The newsletter for the current week is available to view online and/or download a copy. See the sidebar (Newsletter) on the right of this page. Please note, this is a two week bulletin.



Christian Unity

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2020

Each year we are reminded of the Faith which we share with other Christians about us. In a time when so many people have no faith this more important than ever. This annual event we are marking in our area by gathering on one single Sunday to pray together (There are some booklets at the back of church to help you pray each week leading to the feast of the Conversion of St Paul). Let us pray for each other – and pray together this Sunday, 19 January at 3.00pm at the Methodist Church on Queensway In Poulton town centre.

New Telephone Number

After some years of difficulty with our parish phone, and it being useless over Christmas, it has now been mended. However this has needed a new system and we have finished up with a new number.

Please could you change your records to read:

St John the Evangelist, Poulton-le-Fylde: 01253 893184

Sorry if you have been trying to contact me!

The Social Life of Our Parish

Thanks to the excitable group of parishioners who gather to encourage us to gather socially as God’s people. Thanks, also, to people who accept the invitation to join in with ideas and help. Our Friday meeting planned some events and floated some other for responses from you:

Parish Lunch: This is a long standing and well loved event which is due to be happening on Sunday, 9 February. If you have not yet booked for this important parish event please pick up a form at the back of church and give the money to Anne Bradley or Fr Peter soon.

Jesus himself based his ministry around eating with others and left us the Eucharist as the sign of this action so it is good that our parish has a tradition of eating together. If you have a problem with transport please let us know so that we can deal with it somehow (If you can offer a seat also let us know).

Preparation For First Forgiveness and First Holy Communion
If you have a child in Year 3 or above and you think they are mature enough to prepare to celebrate these sacraments over the year please speak to them about this as we will be asking for details of those families interested soon.
