"Come to me all you who are burdened and I will give you rest"

Bell Tower 160

Welcome to the Catholic Church of Saint Mary Immaculate.  The Parish is set in the middle of Warwick, England and is a long-established, thriving local church in the heart of Warwickshire. 

Our aim is to be active, friendly and keen to add to the community that we support.  We hope that the information provided is of interest not only for parishioners but for visitors to our Church and those wanting to find out more about the Catholic faith in Warwick.

If you're new to the area, please come along to join us as we celebrate Mass and to the various Parish activities.  If you're just in the town for a bit, we'd be delighted to see you.   After the celebration of the 10.30 am Mass on Sunday, there is a coffee morning where we get together for a cup of tea and a chat!  You are welcome and can find us in the Parish Hall.

Now that you have found us, why not spend a little time discovering what's on our website.  The weekly Newsletter keeps you up-to-date with what's happening. Take a look,  come along, join in with community events and find out what's happening over the coming months.

Shalom, Fr Stefan

Assisted Dying Bill - Debated 18 July 2014. Have You Had Your Say?

The Bill to legalise "assisted dying” - meaning assisted suicide - will be debated in the House of Lords on 18th July 2014. There will be a free vote because it is not government legislation. If passed, this Bill would place vulnerable people at serious risk.  Please write before 18th July to a Peer to tell them your views. 

For more information and for details of how to write to a Peer please visit www.catholicchurch.org.uk/assisted-dying-bill and download the document about sense and non-sense from here or the newsletter section on this website.  To have your say please write to a Peer well in advance of 18th July 2014 letting them know of your views.  

Heart Prayer

The Light of the World

"This image was originally painted by the world-famous artist, William Holman Hunt in 1900 and is titled ‘The Light of the World’. Every parish in England and Wales has received a copy.  It is hoped that they will be used to encourage people to pray in their homes and also as a source of grace and consolation to those who are not Catholics but wish to prayerfully sit with the Image.

‘A sermon in a frame,’ is one way this painting has been described such is the richness of its imagery. Please take a moment to observe and reflect on this. To find out more click here ...


Canonisation of Two Popes Do not be afraid!  Life with Christ is a wonderful adventure.  He alone can give full meaning to life, he alone is the center of history.  Live by him!

Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential.  Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.”

"Love can overcome great obstacles,

and God's love can totally transform the world"
