Denise Roebuck has sent us this picture of Canon Collins on a moped bought with funds raised by Ysgol Mair. many parishioners will have fond memories of the Canon who, among his other parish duties, would visit every patient in the Royal Alexandra Hospital each morning, rain, hail or shine. Originally Canon used a bicycle but as he grew older the moped proved invaluable in allowing him to get around and saving his legs.
Your webmaster well remembers that moped as my father, who was a motor mechanic, helped to keep it going with regular servicing and repairs (remembering that even simple engines were not as reliable in the sixties as they are now! ).

We are a very friendly Roman Catholic Church parish serving Rhyl and Kinmel Bay in the Deanery of St Asaph. We love visitors and you are also very welcome to join us for coffee, tea, cakes and biscuits following Sunday morning mass. Many people worship here regularly who are not members of the church.
A lively children’s liturgy takes place on Sunday mornings and there is a monthly children’s mass. Bibles, prayer books, gifts and devotional items are available at our shop at the back of church following Sunday mass.
Our Lady of the Assumption (St Mary’s) has an active community of parishioners forming various groups within the church, such as the Bethany Group, the Society of St Vincent de Paul, the Knights of St Columba and the Union of Catholic Mothers. Although it is administratively and financially completely separate and independent, our parish partners the West Rhyl community organisation 4thecommunity, which operates from St Mary’s church and parish centre. Many parishioners are either directors of volunteers in 4thecommunity, West Rhyl’s grass roots community project.
Well run children’s play schemes operate during the school holiday periods, usually on the lawns or inside in bad weather. Strict safety provisions are in place for all the above activities.
For further information on the groups please see the relevant page on this website or speak to Fr Charles or any group members. View our Parish People page for contact details.
