DIOCESE OF BRENTWOOD. Do you support Catholic schools and the right of Catholics to send their children to them? Then we need you to make your voice heard. The Government is making a critical decision on whether to overturn the admissions cap which prevents Catholic schools from allowing all Catholic pupils attend. They have acknowledged that this policy discriminates against Catholics and promised to abandon it, now we need to tell them not to u-turn on their promise to Catholics. Visit  or research for “Catholic Education” in your search engine to write to the Government and urge them to drop their policy which bans new Catholic schools.


LEGION OF MARY meeting will be held in the church on Thursdays after Mass at 10:15 am.  If anyone is interested they are welcome to attend.


DIVINE MERCY- every Wednesday at 4pm in the Church.


UNABLE TO MAKE IT TO MASS? The church offers a service called Mass Link.  At 6pm Sunday Mass, via Skype, we call people who want to listen to the Mass and broadcast the Mass to them over their phones.
