Welcome to St Mary’s Parish

  • This site describes our efforts to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the 21st Century.
  • 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. Everyone is welcome to join us at any of our Services or events in New Mills or Marple Bridge.

  • Pope Francis is asking all parishes to make their community sustainable in the spirit of the integral ecology set out in Laudato Si. Our Bishop has launched a campaign to respond to this call. CLICK HERE to find our more about our own parish plan for this vital matter.
