Welcome to the website for the Parish of The Sacred Heart and St Gerard's Bellshill, in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Motherwell.
Sacred Heart Parish was founded in 1949 by Father James Butler and the Church opened in 1951. St Gerard's Parish opened in 1967 by Father Patrick Moss as a daughter Parish of The Sacred Heart. The present Church was opened in 1971. In 2013 our two parishes were linked and are served today by Father Kevin McGoldrick.
Today, the new parish of Sacred Heart & St Gerard's founded in December 2018 is an active and thriving parish serving over 5,000 Catholic souls in the town of Bellshill, Lanarkshire.
Hopefully this website will be of interest to you and provide you with further information about our parishes. Finally, we extend a warm welcome to you to visit our parishes, whether you are a regular parishioner or have never been to Church, everyone is very welcome.
