The Catholic Parish of St. John the Evangelist and St. Erconwald, Ingatestone, Essex, extends a very warm welcome!
Whether you are a visitor or new to our parish, interested in becoming a Catholic, seeking to return to the practice of your faith or an active member of our parish, we are pleased that you have come to visit our website and I will do all that I can to assist you.
Please come and join us at the weekend for Mass (Saturday 6:00pm and Sunday 11:00am). We would love to meet you in person. We hope that you find us a warm and friendly community, with a lot happening for people of all ages including a wonderful children’s liturgy for those aged 3 – 8.
If you need to contact a priest in an emergency please telephone Bishop Emeritus Thomas McMahon in Stock (01277840268) or Fr Dominic Howarth at Walsingham House at Abbotswick (07939296292). Basildon and Broomfield Hospitals have “on call” Catholic Priest chaplains for emergencies, as well as lay chaplains for routine visits, and the ward sisters will be able to contact them for you. For any pastoral questions please speak with Fr Martin Hardy at the weekend Masses.
May God in his infinite goodness and love bless you in all your days and ways. We hope to see you soon!
With every blessing,
Jan Myers, Chair of the Pastoral Parish Council
