West Somerset Catholic Parishes

Dulverton, and Minehead with Watchet

Welcome to our web site.


As the lock down begins to unwind, we are pleased to be able to welcome you at our celebration of Mass in both our parish churches.

We continue to take special care to ensure that we comply with the social distance requirements, wash/ gel our hands on arrival and leaving the churches and of course wear a mask. We still cannot have congregational singing and have to clean used spaces after each service. This is a small ask for keeping our neighbour and ourselves safe. As Temples of the Holy Spirit, we need to be careful of our own health and of those around us . Further below the parish bulletin is displayed and gives details of services each week. Please check. The parish magazine for West Somerset Catholics is displayed after the bulletin; just scroll down. Sunday Mass at Dulverton will resume from Sunday 23rd of May at 9.30 am. .

At the moment the obligation to attend Mass on a Sunday and Holy Day 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 feel well. (The regulations state that you can leave home to attend or visit a place of worship and we all need to follow the guidance given for safety on these visits.)
If you wish to attend Mass on a Sunday or the Saturday Vigil, please e mail minehead.sacredheart@cliftondiocese.com or telephone 01643 702201. Once you are on the list you do not need to rebook. If we reach our maximum numbers in the church at Minehead we can accommodate an overflow in the hall, where you will be able to follow Mass on a screen and have Holy Communion brought to the hall during Mass.
Thank you for visiting our web site. God Bless and please keep safe.
Michael J Thomas (Fr.)
Parish Priest
