New Website: www.fssp.co.uk

The FSSP in the UK & Ireland has a new website.

It is a more unified and accessible design, reflecting the growth of our Fraternity in these Isles. In particular, you can now enter your own contact details and amend them at any time as you see fit. You can subscribe to our various circular emails and support any specific apostolate. There is also a Google calendar for each Mass centre. Thank you to Fr James Mawdsley, FSSP who coordinated this improved version of the website over the past few months.


Allow peaceful prayer vigils outside abortuaries.

New Repository. We now have a proper space for Mass cards, good books, rosary beads etc.

Holy Communion Reminder:


To receive Holy Communion, one must be 1) a Roman Catholic 2) in state of grace (no grave sin unabsolved on one’s conscience) and 3) have fasted for at least one hour.


In the traditional Latin rite used at St Mary’s, Holy Communion is received kneeling (if one can), and in any case on the tongue: thank you very much in advance.

Please hold Communion plate against your throat if no server is available.


Please use the entire width of the Communion rail, from one wall of the church all the way to the opposite wall, avoiding any gaps. This will make distribution quicker. Thank you.


Watch Holy Mass at St Marys daily on www.livemass.org. The Mass of the day can be watched for 24hrs and that of the Sunday for the entire week.
