St Francis de Sales

Recently, journalists of all kinds have had an absolute field day reporting events in Westminster, Brussels and elsewhere. Each of us makes up their own mind about how good or accurate their reportage and commentaries are. The reason for mentioning them is that their heavenly patron falls this week. St Francis de Sales was Bishop of Geneva in Switzerland whilst that city was ruled by Jean Calvin and the Protestant Reformers. He visited in secret at the risk of his life. In practice, he was forced to take refuge in the city of Annecy, now in France, but then in the Sovereign Duchy of Savoy. He was a doctor of souls, a gentle teacher and a lover of truth. He helped to found the Visitation Nuns and inspired a host of orders and congregations which call themselves Salesians after him. This included the Missionaries of St Francis de Sales, who run a number of parishes in our diocese and Yeovil in our deanery.

Fridays from New Year 2019

Our Friday morning masses have not been as well supported as hoped. From 1st January 2019, we will maintain Mass on the first Friday of every month and for the special days as they come round. Otherwise, Father Philip will be coming over to work and visit in Cheddar parish.
