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".

Catholic Faith Exploration (CaFE) “Believe - Reflections on the Creed”

Do you find yourself reciting the creed without really thinking about what it all means? Come and join us for an inspiring video series which explores the treasures of our faith as expressed in the Nicene Creed. Mondays during Lent at 10:00 in the Parish Hall, commencing 11 March. Coffee and cake will be served during the discussion period.

CTSW Lenten Talks

The second of the CTSW Lenten talks on the theme of Women in the Gospel Story will be held in our church on Wednesday 27 March at 19:30 for 20:00. It is on Mary, Mother of Jesus, and will be given by Fr. David Clemens. All are welcome.

Stations of The Cross

There will be Stations of the Cross at 19:30 every Friday of Lent.

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.
