This website aims to help you find information about our Parish, such as its history and the history of those who have served within it and obviously what is going on today. You will also find practical information including mass times and how to find us. If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a Catholic, or just curious as to what happens in a church, then please contact the Enquirer’s Group.

For those who already attend St Mary’s Church, information is available on how to become more involved with the life of the church, as well as useful contacts for the various Parish Groups.
