Due to restricted numbers who are allowed to attend any one Mass, advance booking for weekend (but not weekday) Masses is absolutely essential.

In order register a place for a Mass please text 07903 731 213 with (1) your name (2) number of places required (3) which Mass you’d like to attend.  Voicemails can also be left.  Booking should be made by Friday 3pm.

Please note that if you text or leave a voicemail before Friday 3pm, you can assume that you are booked in (i.e. we will not send a message confirming).  If your request is made after Friday 3pm, we shall send you a message with a confirmation or otherwise.  


For initial enquiries, or if you are seeking to discuss arrangements cancelled or postponed due to the Pandemic, please speak to one of the priests after Mass (having registered your places as per the instructions above). Please do this rather than phoning or emailing the parish office in the first instance.

TEXT GIVING You can also contribute £5 by texting CHURCH VIANNEY to 70500. The parish receives 96% of your £5 donation. The money will come from your mobile network account. You only pay a donation if you receive a reply message back. Some mobile phone accounts have text donations blocked on them because they are business phones or they are pre-pay phones with insufficient credit. You may (depending on network) have to pay to send a “standard rate” message which should cost about 10p. Always get the bill payers permission! If you have questions about this service call 03306600425 to speak to someone from the service provider Vir2. Any money donated to CHURCH VIANNEY will be allocated to the parish.
