Saffron Walden

Our Lady of Compassion



LENT is the liturgical season of preparation for Easter. It reminds us all of our duty to "clean" up our act regarding our way of living. Recall our baptism, our promises to live the life of Christ.  Make sure we have more prayer, more penance, more caring, so that we can fulfil the words of Jesus, the greatest commandment. "Love God first and our neighbour as ourselves".

Stations of The Cross

On Fridays throughout Lent there will be Stations of the Cross following 9.00 morning Mass, and again in the evening at 19.30

Draft response to diocesan 'Working together to evangelise our diocese'

The diocesan Stewards of the Gospel renewal and restructuring programme has reached an important stage. In late 2017 we received the promised First Formal Proposals for the Renewal and Restructuring of the Diocese document titled Working together to evangelise our diocese. Our draft response can be seen here. All feedback gratefully received - please contact Ken Lowe (Steward of The Gospel, Saffron Walden).

More information on Stewards of the Gospel page.

Like other churches in Saffron Walden, the Catholic church has a lively and numerous congregation, drawing its parishioners from a geographically large parish, stretching from Steeple Bumpstead to Chrishall, from Great Chesterford to Newport and forming part of the North Essex Deanery of the Diocese of Brentwood.
