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.

Parish Emailing List

As you are aware, we use Social Media regularly to post Parish news, upcoming events, photos from past events, etc.   We realise some members of our parish may not have access to Social Media and are missing out on receiving such items. Therefore, we would like to create an email mailing list, where parishioners can receive this information.  If you are interested, please send an email to our Parish email address (kelvedoncatholicparish@gmail.com) stating that you give us permission to have your email address (needed to comply with the Data Protection Act) and we will add you to the list!   If you do use Social Media and wish to be added to the list also, please send your permission to the above address.  We will only use your email addresses to advise you about Parish news and you can asked to be removed from the list at any time. Thank you!

Stewards of the Gospel - Diocesan Draft Working Plan

The Diocesan Draft Working Plan has been published this week by the Director of Development, Steven Webb under the name: Working Together to Evangelise our Diocese. A hard copy of this draft has been placed in each church for parishioners to study. The document can also be found on our parish website by clicking here.

An electronic copy can be sent to you upon request. Either put your email address on the list next to the document (in each church) or email neville@bridgman.demon.co.uk if you wish to receive one.

Alternatively, you can download it from the diocese website by clicking on the link below www.dioceseofbrentwood.net/departments/development

A kind reminder that Steven Webb will be available to listen to parishioners and answer questions. Please, come along and make your voice heard before the draft becomes a plan.

The meeting for Maldon, Witham and Kelvedon will be at The Holy Family and All Saints Catholic Church, Witham onTuesday 19 September at 7:30pm. Car share will be available on request. Thank you from your Stewards of the Gospel, Pat Ezra and Angie Hart.

Escapes Routes

 Johann Christoph Arnold

In Escapes Routes, Arnold tells real-life stories of people who have found their way out of life’s hells despite the odds. This isn’t a self-help book. It offers no quick fixes or superficial makeovers. But if you are ready to take its medicine, it will guide you on your way to a more hopeful and meaningful life.
