Although our churches are reopen for Mass, Cardinal Nichols assures us that the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days remains removed during these emergency circumstances. The Mass times across our three parishes can be found in the newsletter by following the tab below.
Many of these Masses and Services are recorded and available any time by going to our live stream page and scrolling down to ‘Watch Videos.’

From Fr. David:
A Time to say Goodbye: Well it looks finally as if the time has come for me to say goodbye or at least cheerio; I hope that many of you will feel free to keep in touch and that we will see each other again; I won’t be far away in Knutsford. My first appointment at Our Lady’s lasted three years and so, it turns out, has my second appointment. Over the last few months it has been a joy to get to know people at St Vincent’s and St Ambrose too and have the chance to work with many wonderful and dedicated people. We are living in such a strange and challenging time but the way people have come together so generously in our three parishes so that we can open up for Mass has been a real inspiration to me and I thank everyone who has helped in any way.
There are always very mixed emotions when a priest is asked to move: I will be sad to leave so many people who have worked with me and supported me and offered me love and friendship during my time back here in Stockport and at the same time I am excited by the new challenge that awaits me in Knutsford. I hope that I have brought some peace to Our Lady’s and that my short time at St Vincent’s and St Ambrose has eased the transition for you all as you all learn to share a priest. If I have hurt anyone through a thoughtless remark or lack of care or compassion I am truly sorry and ask your forgiveness. I pray that our three parishes will move forward now under the new leadership of Fr Martin and wish you all every happiness and fulfilment as you all continue through your love and commitment to witness powerfully to the Lord who is at the centre of all that we do and are. God bless you all. Fr David.
