St. Mary's Church Update

We received some encouraging news, although St Mary's church unfortunately remains temporarily closed. A new architect has been appointed to the project and over the next few weeks up to Christmas he is carrying out the essential background checks and assessments that are particularly necessary for a listed building such as St Mary's church. He has also produced a works schedule which would see the necessary internal and external repairs beginning simultaneously on the second week of January. This is scheduled to be completed by the end of February and we envisage reopening in early March in time for the start of Lent. We will continue to keep you informed through the newsletter and through this website. 

Which Mass to Choose? At the moment the demand for Vigil Masses is less than those on Sunday mornings, so it may ease the stewarding and social distancing considerations if you choose to attend either of the two Vigil Masses. Weekday Masses are more lightly attended and can be used unless your only option is at the weekend.


Thank you for your cooperation and understanding


Fr David, Parish Priest
