After saying both Masses on Sunday 26th July 2020 Fr Bernard Higham stepped down as Parish Priest at Our Lady of Compassion.

This is a brief message to his parishioners.

“I would like to thank everyone for the tremendous support I have received over the last 22 years. Thank you for your friendship and kindness.

I am delighted to be staying within the community. During the summer I will remain at the presbytery and then I will be taking one of the flats in the rectory next door. So I will still be around and able to help out if needed.

All three of Formby’s Catholic churches will become one parish served by Fr John Walsh.

God bless.”
