Mass on Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd April has been cancelled. Fr John is unwell.
Message from Fr. John
I want to say a special thank you to you for all your Easter greetings and very generous Easter Offerings. Can I also say a big thank you to our stewards for their hard work in keeping us safe during Mass.
Thank you for all you do for our parishes, both St Mary’s and St Anthony’s throughout the year.
Let us continue to keep each other in our prayers as we slowly move out of lockdown.
God Bless you all.
Sunday Giving by GIFT AID envelopes for 2021/2022
With the Corona Virus pandemic people have started using cash less payments and thus have started using new and different ways to donate to the parish, either by standing order, via the Website or by use of the contactless machines in the church. Therefore, the need for gift aid envelopes to donate cash has reduced significantly. If you have continued to use gift aid envelopes during 2020 then new envelopes
for 2021/2022 are available in the entrance porch. If you have not used them, but feel you would like to restart rather than use the new ways of donating, then please contact the parish office via email at
or phone the parish office on 01202 675412 Monday -Friday
CAFOD Lent Appeal Update 2021
Thank you everyone who has already donated to CAFOD's Fast Day & the Walking for Water challenge, but in case you haven’t there is still time. Lots of people across the UK are walking every day
in Lent, come rain, wind or sun, for funds to provide clean accessible water for millions of people across the world and especially in drought and war-torn areas in N. Africa.
Please consider donation to the St. Mary’s CAFOD team. Thank you
