Ancient Jewel - Living Church

Welcome to the Priory Church of St. Mary and St. Michael, Cartmel.  The Priory is indeed an ancient jewel and a living Church. We are open daily and there are many activities during the week as well as three services each Sunday.  The Priory Church has been a place of pilgrimage for over 800 years and is a sacred space that energises  and shapes religious meaning.  The Priory is a haven of peace and tranquillity, somewhere "to be", helping to relieve the pressures of modern living.  Whatever brings you to the Priory Church, you are most welcome.  Blessings.

Nick Devenish - Vicar for the Priory Church.
