Frs Jerome, Bob, Martin, Theo, John and Maurice

We are a Catholic community brought together by God's love under the pastoral care of the Discalced Carmelites. Our baptism calls us to respond to that love by following Christ and serving our neighbour.    

Our parish is blessed with six Carmelite priests and a welcoming and friendly Parish Office team.

The Parish Office is now manned twice a week on Mondays and Fridays by volunteers, see times below:

  • Monday from 9am until 12 noon
  • Friday from 10am until 12 noon

If you want to get a Mass Card, arrange a Mass, add someone to the Bidding Prayers, book an appointment, make an enquiry, collect forms/letters and so forth, someone will be on hand at the reception desk during these times to help you.

We are still happy to receive Mass intentions and prayer requests via email to or by telephone on 01753 886581.  If you send an email, please ensure you include a telephone number so any queries may be resolved efficiently.
