West Somerset Catholic Parishes

Dulverton, and Minehead with Watchet

Welcome to our web site.


Although we are currently in Lockdown, we are pleased that we can welcome you and are allowed to celebrate Mass in both our Churches. We do however have to take special care to ensure that we comply with the social distance requirements, wash/gel our hands on arrival and leaving and of course wear a mask. We are also not allowed to sing and have to clean the space we have used after each service. A small ask for keeping our neighbour and ourselves safe. As Temples of the Holy Spirit we have a duty to be careful of our own health and that of those around us, our neighbours. The parish bulletin displayed below gives details of the services each week, please check the details.

During the Lockdown we are not celebrating Mass on a Sunday at Dulverton but on a Tuesday at 1015am in St. Stanislaus. This is a temporary arrangement while the obligation to attend Mass on a Sunday is suspended. Please feel welcome at whichever Mass you wish to attend and remember your safety and health come first, so only attend if you are feeling well.

(The regulations state that you can leave home to attend or visit a place of worship. You and we need to and do follow the guidance on safe use of places of worship.)

If you wish to attend on a Sunday (or vigil) please book a place on line: minehead.sacredheart@cliftondiocese.com or phone 01643 702201 Once you have booked a place your name will be kept on the list.

Please take care, keep safe and God Bless.
