Upcoming Events

Sunday Masses

The numbers attending our Masses on Sundays is increasing, and we are still restricted by social distancing and the safe capacity of our church (50). So that stewards do not have to turn away people when the church is full, we are asking everyone to register for Sunday Masses from the 11th April onward. There are several ways you can register:

  • You can register with the Stewards at Masses the previous Sunday, or during the week
  • You can register on-line on this web site (select "Information" and then "Book for Mass")
  • You can e-mail your requirements to the Parish (
  • You can telephone Carmel Calvert (678 7019)

If your plans change after you have registered, and you will not be attending Mass, please let us know so that your place can be allocated to someone else.

Registering is not required for weekday Masses.

All Masses will continue to be live-streamed.

Sunday Collection

Boxes of offertory envelopes for 2021-22 are available at the back of church for those who normally receive them.

Please click here for information on the options available if you wish to change your existing arrangements.

For those Parishioners who are not attending Mass and normally give in the collection, to continue to help the Parish in these difficult times, you can now give on line, either as a one off payment or as a regular monthly payment, by clicking here. Please note that the minimum amount that can be donated is £5.
