  • To receive Holy Communion: one must be a Catholic, in state of grace, one-hour fasting at least. In the EF liturgy, Holy Communion is received kneeling (unless unable to) and always on the tongue. Thank you in advance.
  • Modesty in church: please cover your bodies at least down to elbows and below knees; no tight or see-through garments.

New Logo for St Mary’s Shrine: the centre of the great Lady rose window is the feature of our church best identifiable. It will provide a visual identity for the Shrine. We plan to have it displayed on banners, stickers, mugs etc.


Priory Campaign successfully ended:

Our heartfelt thanks go to all our generous benefactors who have made the purchase and conversion of Priory Court possible. This much needed addition to St Mary’s Shrine facilities involves significant funding, and it would not have been possible without your financial support. At the time of writing, with a few final administrative checks still to be undertaken, we are fairly certain that the Priory Campaign final total stands at £957,917.48. When we add the expected Gift Aid rebates on some of your donations, along with other funds received towards hall facilities, this raises the total to about £1,019,300.00.

With last year’s purchase of Units 2 and 3, and some remedial works completed in recent months, roughly half of this figure has been spent. However, the remaining funds will allow us to comfortably buy Unit 1 and make the necessary conversion work and adaptions for Shrine use. Thanks be to God and Our Lady, and to you!


Mass readings: If you are new to St Mary’s Latin Mass community, please note that we normally have printed sheets with English translations and booklets to help you follow Holy Mass. Those are currently not available due to anti-virus regulations. But you can find on our website a link to the readings for the Mass of each day. You can also subscribe for free to our weekly circular emails with all news and interactive links.


100 confessions heard two weeks ago! Breaking St Mary’s weekly record. Thank God for His mercy!


OFFERTORY COLLECTION at the END of EVERY Mass, daily: a steward will be holding the collection basket by the Porch door as you exit, for you kindly to put your offering.

You can send your donation to St Mary’s Shrine via our Donate page: https://fssp.co.uk/donate/. Ask us for a Gift Aid form to increase your donation by 20% at no extra cost to you.
