Confessions

There are currently no scheduled times for the sacrament of reconciliation — we hope to bring back regular confession sessions in 2022. However, Fr Peter and Fr Antonio are always happy to hear confessions by appointment. Please contact the Parish Office to make an appointment to see a priest.

Welcome to the Catholic Parish of Bishop's Stortford

About Our Parish

We are the Catholic Parish of Bishop’s Stortford, incorporating the Roman Catholic churches of St Joseph and the English Martyrs (Bishop’s Stortford), Holy Cross (Much Hadham) and Most Holy Redeemer (Sawbridgeworth). We are situated in Hertfordshire and are part of the Diocese of Westminster. We hope you will find everything you need to know on this website but please feel free to contact us if we can help with anything.

MORE ABOUT OUR PARISH

We are proud to belong to the Diocese of Westminster and the Roman Catholic Church, the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.

One

The Church is one because it is a single, united and global Church which has its basis in Christ.

Holy

The Church is holy, because it is the Body of Christ with Jesus as the head. This does not mean that all members of the Church are sin free. It means that the Church and her sacraments help to make the faithful holy.

Catholic

The word catholic literally means ‘universal.’ The role of the Church is to spread the Word of God universally across the world.

Apostolic

The origins and beliefs of the Church started out with the apostles at Pentecost.
