SVP


Sadly, the SVP folded some time ago as all the members were getting on in age and no one was found willing to take over the running of it.  If you are interested in reviving it, please contact the Parish Priest. However, we continue to encourage parishioners to visit our elderly and homebound parishioners. If you would like to join this team, please contact the Parish Priest or Deacon.


APF Red Boxes


The Association for the Propagation of the Faith (APF) assists each and every one of the Catholic Church's 1,062 mission dioceses and territories to provide pastoral care and preach the Gospel effectively.


See www.pontificalmissionsocieties.co.uk


If you would like one of these traditional household Red Boxes to collect your loose change or donations please contact Elizabeth Norman who is our APF secretary responsible for distributing the boxes, collecting and banking the Red Box contributions.


Red Box holders become members of the APF worldwide, the only charity to support ALL mission dioceses on their way to self-sufficiency.

Music at Belmont Abbey


Belmont Abbey Parish enjoys a rich tradition of music in the liturgy. The Abbey Church hosts an organ that was originally built in 1870 by Bishop and Sons of London. In 2006 a decision was made to repair, restore this magnificent instrument and to bring it up to concert standards. The work was completed by Nicholson & Co. in June 2010 in time for the 150th Celebrations  of the Foundation of Belmont Abbey. Further information can be found at Nicholson & Co.

Praise and Worship Group


The group offers music at the 11.00 Mass once each month.  They try to offer music which will appeal to all as well as using some of the songs which are distinctive to contemporary worship.  Please contact Jane Davies if you are interested in singing or playing with the group.


Dates are noted in the weekly newsletter.


Justice & Peace


This group which will include CAFOD is to be re-started in the autumn, so please watch out for announcements in the newsletter.
