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.

Our website is part of the framework in which we parishioners work together. It contains details of the organisational groups which are the external shape of our commitment to God, our parish and each other. You and your family are welcome to join us on our journey of faith. We welcome contributions to the website from parishioners - please send us details of parish activities so that we we can publicise them.

If you are new to the Parish, have moved recently or are planning to move please email Fr David Clemens.
