Welcome to St Aidan's Catholic Church
Welcome to St Aidan's Parish Website
|Fr Ken Payne||Deacon John Crowshaw|
Welcome to our web site, and an even warmer welcome awaits you if you visit our church and meet some of the parishioners. A good opportunity to do this is to volunteer for one or other of the many parish activities or enjoy a cup of coffee or tea with others in the parish hall after the 10.30 am Sunday Mass.
Most Catholic parishes are cosmopolitan and ours is no exception with some twenty different nationalities represented. By far the largest group are the Poles who have their own priest, Father Roman, who celebrates Mass in Polish on Sunday at 9 am , as well as several weekday Masses.
Then the good "runners up" are those from the Philippines, who help on occasions to lead some of our singing. Bringing all countries together, and indeed the parish, several times a year there is an ever popular International Lunch, at which you may indulge in a taste of world wide flavours.
In addition to the various activities mentioned in this website, the Parish Council are always open to further suggestions to help us all grow in the building up of Christ's Kingdom here at St Aidan's.
We look forward to extending a very warm welcome to everyone.
