Christmas at St Edmund’s

Fr Steve, Fr Ashley, Fr Simplicio and Deacon Sean send Christmas greetings to all and grateful thanks for your kind cards and gifts.

We wish all Parishioners a Happy and Holy Christmas.

The offerings from all Christmas Masses are your personal gift to our priests and are separate from any standing order or regular giving you may have set up. Gift Aid can be claimed on these Christmas Offerings but is retained by the parish itself – the priests do not benefit from this element. As the Christmas collection is always so generous we do urge our Gift Aid donors to ensure their offering is given in an envelope showing their Gift Aid number or their name and address on the outside.
Christmas offerings can also be made online here. Enter an amount under ‘one-off donation’, check that ‘Christmas Offering for Priests’ is selected from the dropdown menu and continue by following the on-screen prompts. Thank you for your generosity to our priests at Christmas and Easter and to our parish through-out the year.

All the money raised will go to support the local Catholic Children’s Society Crisis Fund which provides one-off emergency grants to support children and families who are experiencing a crisis in their lives. Your donations should be placed in the box in the wall on the left of the doors near where the crib is. There are envelopes to use if you wish to Gift Aid your donation.


If you need a priest over the Christmas period one will always be available after the 10 am daily Mass or if a priest is needed urgently please phone 07740 970749 which is the phone carried by the on-call priest.

The Parish Office is taking a short break and will re-open on January 2. A very happy Christmas to you all, Rosemary & Barbara
