Our Parish

Father Michael is our Parish Priest and welcomes everyone to Mass at church.

Our weekend Masses are 6pm on Saturday and 8.30am on Sunday.

At different times of the year our children process, read, sing and contribute to the parish Masses which is always wonderful. 

Our parishioners are prayer sponsors for our children as they prepare for and receive First Sacraments.

Sunday 29th October was the first Family Mass of the school year. Our Junior Parish Mission Committee made shakers for the children to use to encourage them to get fully involved. 

 The Mass was a wonderful success and the some of the children came up on the altar to help Father with his homily as he explained the readings.

Family Mass

 Some members of the Junior Parish Mission Committee did the readings. All the children made us very proud as always. 

Our Junior Parish Mission Committee have organised a School-Parish Christmas Quiz and advertised this to the school and parish community. This will be a fantastic time spent together!

The JPMC have decided that all proceeds will go to Focus4Hope. Well done to them!






At Saturday Mass our children regularly share our Academy News with the parishioners so they can keep up to date with what is happening in school and to invite them to our Masses and liturgies.

Reading at Parish Mass

 Well done to our two school and parish representatives who laid a wreath at the local community Remembrance            Service at Bailiffe Bridge Memorial Park            on Sunday 12th November. 

On Sunday 26th November we held our parish Advent 'crafternoon' in the church hall, followed by Family Mass. Our children really enjoy the opportunity to get creative and then share their creations with the parish.

Father leads everyone in Mass and the children help him during the homily and play percussion instruments to accompany the hymns too!

Advent Family Mass

Our Choir sang as always at the annual SVP Christmas Party for the housebound and elderly of the parish. They are busy rehearsing a repertoire of carols and Christmas songs. They gave out instruments and streamers too so the party goers could join in! 

Everyone had a fabulous time!
