This document will not be shared electronically.

Children Education Meeting at St Mary’s. As you know, families meet every Wednesday afternoon at Priory Court for educational activities. The purchase of the new building and the growing needs of families lead us to envisage more. Please look at the successful Regina Caeli Academy model as an option.

Having Holy Masses offered at St Mary’s: an excellent act of devotion and faith.

For the benefit of our congregation, we have decided to offer every week a Holy Mass for the following intentions:

  • Sunday 11am: All St Mary’s Faithful;
  • Wed evening: All Men at St Mary’s;
  • Fri: All St Mary’s penitents of the week.

We invite you to choose one from these three new intentions when you next hand to us an envelope with the usual Holy Mass stipend (circa £10.00 per Mass). In addition, you are of course welcome to continue to offer Holy Mass stipends with your own specific intentions.
