Dear Parishioners and visitors,

Welcome to our website. These are unprecedented times, and so, please note the following summary of the current position:

From 4pm on Friday 20th March 2020, there will be no public Masses, Services, Sacraments or Liturgies celebrated in our Parish Churches, until further notice.

From 9pm on Mon 23rd March both the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Sea Road and the Mass Centre of St Martha’s in Little Common are closed until further notice.

All Catholics in England & Wales are hereby dispensed from the obligation to assist / participate in the Sunday Masses and Holy Days of Obligation, until further notices.

The presbytery and parish office are now closed to all personal callers. Please avoid telephoning the Parish Office as the  administrators are now furloughed and no longer working and so, the answerphone will not be checked regularly. Fr Simon can access emails sent to: stmm@btconnect.com
