     Welcome to our Parish                                 If you want to find the sacred space in your life, then you must want to “walk without blemish.”
                                                                                               You will of course fail to live without blemish,
 but failing is quite different from not even trying.’

Bishop's Pastoral Letter November 2018

Our Bishop, the Rt Rev Patrick McKinney, has temporarily appointed Fr John St John as Parochial Administrator of our two Parishes. Fr John St John will move from his present parish and take up the temporary appointment in September, during the week beginning 17 September 2018. He asks us to make him welcome while he serves us, and to give him every support.  The Bishop feels that the two parishes should continue to function well and be welcoming of all visitors.

Find out why our Church has been dedicated to the Divine Infant of Prague and to read about its very interesting history:


 Prayer for peace in Syria

O God of peace, who are peace itself and whom a spirit of discord cannot grasp, nor a violent mind receive, grant that those who are one in heart may persevere in what is good and that those in conflict may forget evil and so be healed. Through our Lord Jesus
St John of Damascus, pray for us.


We now have a new display cabinet full of repository items for baptism, first holy communion, confirmation etc as well as a card rack where parishioners can help themselves and deposit the cost of the card in the cash box. For items in the cabinet Maria is usually at all Syston masses so if anyone would like to look at anything they only have to let her know. You will find her in the porch at the end of mass. Her contact details are inside the cabinet should anyone need anything outside of mass times.
Lastly there is a notebook and pen on the card rack (behind the cash box) should anyone like to leave any enquiries that way or any suggestions for future orders. If you leave your contact details, she will get back to you.
