Welcome to St Mary's

Mass times in our Parish

Mass Times:

**Coronavirus update 23rd March 2020** We are now implementing the Stage 3 guidelines from the Bishops of England and Wales, which means all public acts of worship will be suspended from Friday 20th March. All the details can be found on our news and events page.

You can get the latest on COVID-19 in the Catholic practice here, including some prayers for the sick, healthcare workers and those who need to self-isolate: https://www.cbcew.org.uk/home/our-work/health-social-care/coronavirus-guidelines/

Unfortunately, due to the new rules put in place by the Government tonight, we will be unable to continue to open the church for individual prayer for at least the next three weeks. We realise this will be upsetting, but please take advantage of all the ways to pray at home for the end of the pandemic.

Most of us sing, even in the bath – it’s the best form of exercise, for body, mind and spirit! Several of us at St Mary’s have expressed the desire to meet together to sing, starting with trying out some music for Holy Week and Easter Day: Christmas is not the only time to sing lovely music. Why not give it a try? We are all busy people, and may find a regular commitment to meet hard to achieve; but you can just ‘drop in’ at first, and find out how it goes: if you discover you like it, you may well wish to find the time to meet more regularly. Also, you don’t need to be able to read music, since we can learn the songs together, and just experience the joy of singing. We’d love to hear your views and expressions of interest and support for this project, so please contact the Parish Office.
