Welcome to St Mary’s Parish
FR DANIEL WRITES
- ADVENT AND BEYOND: As we begin a New Year of church life, we are thinking about what that might mean for our Church community in New Mills and Marple Bridge. Father Daniel now has access to Microsoft Teams and we’re considering recreating some spiritual events online, certainly for the foreseeable future. This will require people’s inspirations, ideas and of course your participation. Father Daniel is happy to host a meeting on Tuesday 1st December at 7pm, to explore some possibilities. If you wish to attend this meeting, you will need to email Father Daniel so he can send you a link to join the meeting; everyone is welcome to attend

- GETTING TO KNOW PARISHONERS:In the present circumstances it is an unusual time to have moved into a parish. Presumably under normal circumstances we would have hadsomesort of informal gathering (with buffet, of course!) I am conscious that although I have met many of you in my time ‘covering’ the churches, it is not the same as being ‘parochial administrator’. If anybody would like a visit, or would like to visit here for a chat, (these things dependingon whatever restrictions are in place), do give me a call. Similarly, if anybody would like a talk over the telephone, that would be fine, although please don’t be offended if I have to defer it to another time! Also, many thanks for various cards and notes of welcome received.
We are a Catholic Community, spread over a wide area of the Goyt Valley at the gates of the picturesque Peak District, attached to the Catholic Diocese of Nottingham. There are two Churches in our combined community, with one Parish Priest covering both.
In normal times everyone is welcome to join us at any of our Services, or events, in New Mills or Marple Bridge.
This site contains a short description of most of our combined efforts to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the 21st Century.
