Please note, on Sundays at 10.30am Mass is held outside in the garden of the Priest’s House.

ARCHDIOCESAN ANNUAL PILGRIMAGE TO
Every year on the first Sunday in September, hundreds of pilgrims make their way to our corner of Worcestershire to HARVINGTON HALL to commemorate the English Martyrs.
This year, the pilgrimage took place online, and may be viewed via the Archdiocese of Birmingham website. https://www.birminghamdiocese.org.uk/Event/harvingtons-annual-pilgrimage-goes-online. The recording shows Mgr John Moran, our parish priest here at St Mary’s, celebrating Mass in the Hall’s chapel.
The parishioners of St Mary’s and the surrounding Deanery churches look forward to welcoming pilgrims again in 2021 and, as is our tradition, being able to offer hospitality, refreshments and organisation at this popular event.
Please refer to the most recent newsletter on this website.
