Mass Times: after six months, we have been looking at Mass provision over the four parishes now that we know what the routine feels like. We proposed no longer saying the Wednesday Mass in Wells, but people have asked that this continue as it is popular with market day. So we are happy to continue with this. We will, however, have to cancel the Mass on Tuesdays (unless there is a school Mass in Church) and also the Latin Mass on Mondays. This means that at Wells, the weekday Masses are on Wednesday at 9.30am and Friday at noon. We have to be sensible with what we can do, and be fair across all our parishes. Please pray for us! All four parishes will now have two weekday Masses.

Lent Lunches will be taking place on Thursday 12th, 19th and 26th March, the final one will be here on Thursday 2nd April where Kathy will talk about Mary's Meals.

Fr Wally has indicated that he would love to be invited to share Sunday lunch with parishioners in their own homes, to help him to get to know us better. If you would like to invite him to your home please have a chat with him in the hall after Mass, to arrange a suitable date.

New Hall News: The fund stands at £37,312.00.

First Holy Communion: Please see Fr Bede or Fr Anselm if you would like your child to make their First Holy Communion next year. (Wells - Saturday 13th June 11.00am; Cheddar - Sunday 14th June 9.00am; Glastonbury - Sunday 14th June 11.00am; Shepton - Saturday 20th June 11.00am - note the changed date)
