This is the website for the parish of St Mary Immaculate & The Holy Archangels. Although the parish is centred in Kelvedon, Essex it also includes the churches of St Bernard at Coggeshall and St John Houghton in Tiptree.

The parish covers a fairly large, rural part of Essex - it includes 13 villages. The parish is vibrant, friendly and welcoming; extending a warm invitation to all who wish to take part in Mass, attend a social event, or visit with family and friends.

Sean & Maria O'Leary's Farewell to the Parish

As you no doubt already know, Sean and Maria are moving (back) to Ireland after some 40 years in the parish. Their contribution to the parish has been enormous and they will be greatly missed.

We had a wonderful 'get together' after Mass at Coggeshall with many attending the early Mass especially.

We wish them well and all the happiness in the world on this new chapter in their lives.

There are more pictures to be found by clicking here - and more to follow as they are processed.


Maria and Sean would like the say a sincere thank you for all the kind thoughts, prayers and good wishes received when we sadly left the parish..We feel very fortunate to have been part of such a caring community   We are settling in well, and have been made very welcome in our new parish, where you will  be included in our prayers.

God bless

Maria and Sean
