Urgent - please read immediately.

Following a confirmed Covid case in the congregation at last Friday's evening Mass, Fr Robert has been 'pinged' by NHS Track & Trace. Fr Alan was also present at this Mass. To comply with NHS advice this means that there will be no public Masses at St Mary's this week and sadly, we must also cancel the proposed Requiem for Father Hilary Davidson on Saturday, 29 Jan. The Sunday Mass, 30 Jan, will go ahead as normal and Fr Malcolm has kindly agreed to celebrate and preach, unless prevented by being pinged himself. In that case, a further update will be issued to make the situation clear. All being well, weekday Masses will resume on Tuesday, 1 February.

If you were present at the Friday Mass (22 Jan) you should consider yourself a close contact of a Covid case and take the appropriate action - see the NHS website for more information or email Fr Robert.

Finally, if you are in touch with members of the congregation who do not receive email or see this website, would you please pass this information on as a priority, in order that as few people as possible are inconvenienced or make unnecessary journeys. Thank you.

Victoria Primary


It was very good to welcome classes from Victoria Primary to St Mary's last week. We had a good time looking at some of the things that we use in our worship and at our beautiful building.
