Welcome to the Our Lady of the Assumption RC Church (St Mary’s Rhyl) website. As you will notice if you have been here before, the site has had a recent redesign. We hope you like the new layout and still find it both informative and user friendly!


A fundamental aspect of any website is that it is topical and current. In keeping the website up to date, we rely on all the parish group leaders and parishioners to send through relevant news and information. It is your responsibility to ensure the group pages are correct and up to date. To do this, please use the new CONTACT FORM.


We encourage any members of the parish, or visitors, to contact us using our new CONTACT FORM. This will send a message direct to the editor, who will then ensure it is seen by the relevant personnel. We appreciate any feedback, so if you have any comments about the website, or notice any inaccuracies, please let us know.


If you have any photographs of the church or any church events, or if your children have any drawings for the website, we would love to show them off on the gallery pages. All you need to do is scan the drawings, or attach the photos, in an e-mail to us. Don’t forget to add your name and age to the e-mail if you are sending in a drawing.

Prayer Board

Don’t forget to view our new prayer board and send us any prayers and prayer intentions for inclusion.

St Mary's RC Rhyl Altar

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. A quieter more meditative Saturday evening vigil mass provides an alternative worship experience. Bibles, prayer books, gifts and devotional items are available at our shop at the back of church following weekend masses.

Our Lady of the Assumption (St Mary’s) has a very 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. There is also a Youth Justice Craft Group, Mums and Toddlers group and Guitar group.

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.
