Welcome to the St Oswald and St Edmund Arrowsmith Parish Website

Our Church is open for public Mass celebration at the usual times (see latest newsletter for up to date details) and private prayer and devotion to The Blessed Sacrament each weekday-Monday-Friday from 10am to Midday and Saturdays, following 9.30am Mass, until 12.00 (with the exception of the first Saturday each month). We hope you are to able to join us for private prayer and public Mass. Visitors are asked to wear facemasks whilst in the Church and to use to hand sanitisers provided when entering church. Fr John is now taking bookings for weddings and baptisms. He can be contacted in the sacristy at the end of Sunday Mass.

For well over 100 years now, St Oswald’s has also been a place of pilgrimage for the relic of St Edmund Arrowsmith’s Holy Hand-Saint and Martyr. The Holy Hand is present on the altar at each Mass and is used in the blessing at the end of Mass: we welcome visitors and also pilgrimage groups by appointment. Father John Gorman, August 2021
