A Church of England Parish, affliated to Forward in Faith and the Society, under the Sacramental and Pastoral Care of the Bishop of Richborough.
St Mary's has a Parish Safeguarding Policy (available in church) and has appointed a Safeguarding Officer to assist the Parish Priest in all safeguarding matters. Our Parish Safeguarding Officer can be contacted on (01933) 275122. The Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser can be contacted on (01733) 887040.
We have had a busy few weeks in the parish - a very successful Jumble Sale followed in short order by one of our regular Book Sales, which raised £2000 in about two hours! We rounded things off with a festive Parish Mass of St Teresa of Avila, at which the celebrant and preacher was the Bishop of Richborough, on what was probably his last official visit to St Mary's. Our love and prayers go with him.
