A VERY WARM WELCOME TO THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH OF
OUR LADY & ST THOMAS OF CANTERBURY IN WYMONDHAM, NORFOLK


Fr. Michael

Fr. Michael

We are a large parish, serving the communities of Wymondham, Attleborough, Hethersett, Mulbarton and Hingham and all points in between.  The Church was originally built in 1952, since when we have enlarged with a Narthex and meeting rooms attached to the Church, together with a separate Parish Hall. We are a lively Parish, with monthly social events, prayer groups and a number of volunteer groups, including the Catholic Women’s League, Helping Hands and Far East Prisoners of War (to whom the Church is dedicated) and a social events committee.  There is also a Parish Pastoral Council and a Finance Committee. I hope that you find the information you are looking for on our website. I can always be contacted either by phone or email, or in person before or after Mass.  Please do not hesitate to get in touch. The Parish looks forward to welcoming you and hope you feel at home with us.

Safeguarding

The Catholic Diocese of East Anglia is fully committed to safeguarding in the Church in order to ensure that we maintain peaceful, loving and safe Christian communities in which everybody, particularly young and vulnerable members, can confidently participate.

We have therefore eagerly adopted and implemented the policies and procedures of the Catholic Church of England and Wales, which is committed to safeguarding as an integral part of the life and ministry of the Church.

We recognise the personal dignity and rights of all vulnerable people, to whom we have a special responsibility.  The Diocese, parishes and individuals in it will: take all appropriate steps to maintain a safe environment for all; practice fully and positively Christ’s Ministry towards children, young people and vulnerable adults; and will respond sensitively and compassionately to their needs in order to help keep them safe from harm.

We will liaise closely with statutory agencies to ensure that we: promptly and properly respond to any allegations of abuse; appropriately support any victims; and hold perpetrators to account.
