Holy Family Parish is committed to the Diocese of Plymouth Vision Statement calling us to become more fully a celebrating, caring, learning and living church. We are a parish community called together by God to live out our Christian life of witness in the world.

We ask your blessing, Gracious God, on our parish. May it always assemble in peace, in reconciliation, justice and joy, in praise of you and in service to the world. May we always accept each other with gratitude and build up each other as members of one body. May we be one as your Son, Jesus Christ, prayed that we might be. With him in the unity of the holy Spirit we give you all honour and glory. AMEN

Prayer “God our Father, open the horizons of our minds and hearts so that we can see what hope Your call holds for us.
Pour out the overflowing gifts of Your Spirit so that we, Your Church, may become a people of hope for our world.
We ask you this, through Jesus Christ Our Lord, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever.
Our Lady, Mother of Hope, pray for us. St Peter, Rock of Hope, pray for us. St Paul, Apostle of Hope, pray for us”

"The body [Christ's Church] is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body.... The eye cannot say to the hand, 'I don't need you!' And the head cannot say to the feet, 'I don't need you!' God has combined the members of the body ... so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other." 1 Cor 12:12, 21, 24-25 (NIV)
