Sea Sunday 2024 - 14th July


Sunday 14th July is Sea Sunday, when the Church prays for all those who live and work at sea.  Seafarers and fishers play a vital role in all of our lives, but they often work in difficult, hazardous conditions.  

The number of crews abandoned by their employers is still at a record high.  Conflicts around the world are compromising their safety, and many are experiencing stress and poorer mental health.  

The special collection today is for Stella Maris (Apostleship of the Sea), the Catholic Church's official maritime agency.  It supports seafarers both practically and spiritually.  Stella Maris is dependent on voluntary donations, so please give generously.  To donate, please visit www.stellamaris.org.uk/donate or text 'SEA' to 70460 to donate £5.  Thank you.

Confirmation 2024


Congratulations to the 23 young people within our Parishes in Communion who were confirmed by Bishop Bosco MacDonald on 20th of June in our church.  Thank you to the catechists who gave their time, commitment and shared their faith, to all the families for their support and to all who helped make it a wonderful celebration.  We continue to offer our prayers and support to our young people as they continue to grow in faith.

Glastonbury Pilgrimage 2024

Full details of this year’s pilgrimage can be found here: https://cliftondiocese.com/pilgrimage/glastonbury-pilgrimage/
and here: https://www.glastonburyshrine.co.uk/pilgrimage.

The Glastonbury Event Car Park, 'Herbie's Field,' has been secured for use by pilgrims at this year's pilgrimage. This is a large car park that can accommodate up to 400 cars, including minibuses. The car park is only a short 12-minute walk from the Shrine and the Abbey gate.  Please see the attached (updated) Map.

Drivers may wish to drop off pilgrims outside the Shrine before parking. The car park is located on Northload Bridge on the B3151 close to the Northload Bridge roundabout on the A39, opposite the Glastonbury Reclamation Centre. Set your sat-nav to BA6 9LE. The what3words location is: ///target.loafing.sticky.
There is a pedestrian crossing on the A39 right by the roundabout. The car park will open at 9:30am on the morning of 14th July and the gates will be closed and locked at 6:00pm. If you wish to stay in Glastonbury for the evening, the municipal car parks are free after 6:00pm.
We kindly request a donation of £5 per car and £10 for minibuses. Please bring cash and, if possible, the correct change, as we do not have card payment facilities at the car park. (There are 3 cash machines outside Morrison's Supermarket, which is right behind the Shrine.)
