Supporting St Mary’s at this time

The Hidden Gem has always been supported so well by so many people, and for this generous support, we are so grateful. Your financial contribution to the parish enables us to carry out the Mission of the Church here in the city centre of Manchester.

In the current situation, not being able to get to St Mary’s, many parishioners, friends, and visitors, are not able to contribute to the parish in the way that they would normally wish to, and many have asked how they can continue to do so during this time. To find out how you can contribute financially to the parish at this time please click on the donate button.

Thank you for your continued generosity in supporting our mission here at St Mary’s, particularly at this difficult time for us all.

Coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic

The Bishops have made clear that in these emergency circumstances, and for as long as they last, the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days is removed. This pandemic is the “serious reason” why this obligation does not apply at this time (see Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 2181).

If you are self-isolating and would like to speak to a priest on the phone, please contact the Presbytery on 0161 834 3547

In such a time of crisis, we need to be particularly attentive to the needs of our neighbour, especially the elderly and vulnerable. So please look out for ways to help those in need around you, by contributing to local food banks, volunteering for charitable initiatives and organisations, or simply by keeping in touch by all the means open to us.
