St Ambrose Barlow
Is held once a month with a planned celebration on the first Sunday of every month. Next celebration is on March 3rd during the 11:00am mass.


Holy Family
– We have a few volunteers but need several more to be able to run a rota in a similar way to St Ambrose. If you would like to volunteer, please speak to either Fr Paul or to Liz in the parish office as soon as possible.


Please note that all volunteers must complete a DBS form with the Archdiocese to comply with safeguarding which is paramount in all parish activities.

Thank you for your generosity
