Welcome to our Parish Website             

Father Michael has asked Joanne White and Richard Smith to coordinate the process for reopening the churches for PRIVATE PRAYER - this cannot happen overnight but we have made a start by looking to requisition the cleaning and personal hygiene materials required as well as the signage for clearly indicating the social distancing procedures.
The process involves a checklist of 120+ points for attention and the obtaining of a certificate from the Archdiocese.


The current plan is to start by opening just for 2 hours on a Thursday morning in St Mary’s and hopefully once we’ve done this and feel comfortable things are in place we would look to open St Paul’s on Friday mornings.


We’ve not yet got a start date and the church will only be open during set times but it will be published here and on our ‘Friends of St Mary’s Chepstow and St Paul’s Caldicot’ Facebook page.

We need some willing volunteers to act as stewards please - 11am till 1 pm on Thursday mornings... stewards need to be over the age of 18 but under the age of 70, must not be pregnant, currently shielding or displaying any symptoms of Covid 19.

A minimum of 2 stewards are required every time the church is open.
