...Mass at the usual time of 12.30 pm this Sunday, 1st January.
Also, Mass on the Feast of the Epiphany,
6th January, at 7.00pm.
"Deacon David will give Benediction at 3-30pm on Sunday December 18 in the delightful medieval church of St Mary's North Stoke. For various reasons, this will be the only Catholic service to be held in the church this year and it would be wonderful if as many as possible would come so that the link with our Catholic heritage is not lost.
Benediction will include a period of silent adoration and the total service will not last more than 30 minutes.
As the church has neither heating nor lighting, just like the medieval times, please wrap up well and it would also be advisable to bring a torch for the short walk back to your car. Ample parking is available just outside the churchyard.
The hamlet of North Stoke is signposted from Houghton bridge and is just over a mile down the narrow lane by the Bridge pub. "
