F Here is the latest news from Fr Charles about Church and our Community

What’s Happening?


Connect, communicate, and help build an even stronger St Mary’s community!

Parishioners have suggested using social media. We have researched this.

We now aim to start a ST MARY’S COMMUNITY GROUP on Facebook in the next month.  We have a draft Facebook page we would like people’s thoughts and ideas on.


We want to listen to people’s ideas and opinions. You’ll be able to be involved from your own home!   

3.30 pm SUNDAY 11th OCTOBER 2020.   


But unfortunately you will have to make your own brew!

 Here is your link number…………….

The Eucharist Returned, 2nd August 2020 (see below)

October, the month of Mary

Fr Charles will lead the rosary twice weekly   during October, on ZOOM. 

The first will be on Thursday 1st October, Feast of St Therese, preceded by a short reflection on the Little flower. Thereafter the Angelus and Rosary will be said each Wed and Sun at 6 pm. If you click the long link number below into your internet browser, a Zoom page will open automatically. Then you will be asked to click a link for immediate entry. For those who lack Zoom please join in the prayers at the same time. God transcends distance and will help us to do so too. Please ring if I can help……..

You’ll need to….

  • Wash hands as you enter. 
  • Try to touch only the place you sit in.
  • Use the one-way system i.e. in at the main doors and out via the Fynnongroew Rd exit
  • Use only the disabled toilet (one in one out)
  • If it’s cold bring a jumper (We need to open windows)

Yes, admittedly it may be easier to pray at home !! But lots find the church space helpful. And also, this helps us develop practices for the future to allow us to gather together safely.
