The source of the information is a very interesting book called “A History of the Parish of Our Lady & St John, Heswall” by Virginia Bowes. A copy is available in the Church for more detailed reference.
The Parish of Holy Family was created in June 1970 by the separation of the Pensby and Thingwall districts from the Parish of Our Lady & St John, Heswall. This was as a response to the growing Catholic population in Pensby and Thingwall. The official decree was raised by the late Mgr P. A. Rees, Vicar General, Shrewsbury Diocese.
