The SVP gives help and seeks help

The lockdown has not stopped the SVP offering friendly practical help to whoever needs it.

The Covid pandemic has led to increased loneliness, loss of independence and depression among local people. More people are suffering the results of unemployment and poverty. New problems keep coming. We have been helping local people with food shortage, shopping, telephone support, repairs, medical appointments and more.

The SVP at St Mary of the Angels is part of the St Vincent de Paul Society of England and Wales, more commonly known as the SVP.  The SVP offers friendship and practical help to all without regard to faith, ethnicity, status or sexual orientation.

The SVP is rising to the challenge of the pandemic.  Will you help? We ask you to refer people to us, pray for our work and to think about what other help you might give. Could you give a donation, give your time as a temporary volunteer, or even become a visiting SVP member?

To ask for SVP help or to offer it please contact

Prayer to Saint Michael

The prayer to St Michael is recommended for use at this time

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle;

be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil;

may God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host,

by the power of God, thrust down to hell Satan, and all wicked spirits

who wander through the world for the ruin of souls.  Amen.

Lockdown #2

Very regrettably, but following the Government’s latest advice and at the instruction of the Bishops’ Conference, we have decided that the church will, once more, be locked and remain locked until Thursday 3rd December for most forms of public worship. We, as a parish, want to set a good example to those around us by taking very seriously these measures.

Please remember that you can visit the Blessed Sacrament ‘virtually’ or ‘remotely’ online and make your prayers and Spiritual Communions there.

HOLY MASSES (WITHOUT THE PRESENCE OF A CONGREGATION) WILL BE LIVE-STREAMED ON THE WEBSITE AT THE FOLLOWING TIMES:

10.30am SUNDAY
10.00am Monday – Saturday (but at 7.00pm on Wednesday)
