About our Parishes

We welcome you to our website and hope you enjoy learning more about our communities.  We warmly welcome both new parishioners and visitors from all over the world to our parish.


Babs Jones will soon be moving away from the parish, so a new Parish Secretary will be needed to assist Father Nick in the office.

If you have basic administration skills and are prepared to help on Friday mornings each week, please contact Father Nick or Babs Jones to express your interest.

The Pope’s Intention for September

“That politicians, scientists and economists work together to protect the seas and oceans.”


Pope Francis has established the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, encouraging the Catholic community around the world to pray for our common home.

The World Day of Prayer also falls at the beginning of Creation Time, which runs from 1st September until 4th October, the feast of St Francis of Assisi. This is an ecumenical season dedicated to prayer for the protection of creation and the promotion of sustainable lifestyles.

There will be a CREATION CELEBRATION MASS for both our parishes on Wednesday 25 September at St Frances of Rome in Ross-on-Wye.  Mass at 7 pm followed by a shared supper.  All welcome.
