Welcome to St Mary’s Parish
Bishops’ message on “Thy Kingdom Come – Global Ecumenical Prayer Initiative”
Please do encourage your parishioners to join in this exciting ecumenical Global Week of Prayer at home, so that we may be more open to the power and grace of the Holy Spirit, and of prayer, in all our missionary work. You may like to make available, via your bulletin, and website, an electronic copy of a Catholic Novena to the Holy Spirit or to sign up to receive by email, and to pray daily at home, during these days between the Ascension and Pentecost, the Pentecost Novena to the Holy Spirit found on this Novena website: https://www.praymorenovenas.com/novena-to-the-holy-spirit
Mgr. John Armitage, the Rector at the National Shrine of Our Lady at Walsingham, would like to invite each diocese to take part in a simple initiative – a Rosary Relay on 31st May 2020. Each diocese has been asked to encourage their people to pray the Rosary either individually, or where possible in small family groups, during a designated hour. The Diocese of Nottingham has been asked to pray the Rosary at 10am on the 31st May, Pentecost Sunday.
If you are in contact with any parishioners over the few days can you check that they are receiving regular emails from somebody in the parish or that they belong to one of the cascading ‘Telephone Trees’ so that they can keep abreast of what is going on.
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.
Wellspring walk news will be found on the coronavirus page
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.
