About Us

Things are getting better. Our church is now open for communal worship and throughout the day for private prayer. All restrictions put in place to combat the Covid Pandemic have now been lifted. Individuals are still asked to act sensibly and responsibly because although the virus has not gone away, we do have to learn to live with it. If you still prefer to take your own precautions such as wearing a mask and hand sanitizing then please do so.

Parish Policies.

1. Giving - That we encourage planned sacrificial giving and only raise money through other means for specific urgent building projects with the approval of the Church Council. Money can be donated towards the work of the church in Scawsby, Scawthorpe and Cusworth via our website.

2. Mass Rite - That we are a catholic parish within the Church of England and that we use the current Roman Rite.

May your people, Lord, persevere in obedience to your will, so that, through this obedience, your Church in our time, may grow in grace & increase in numbers. Through Christ our Lord. Amen 

Living Lord Jesus calls his followers to seek first your Kingdom. Renew us as we make your love known. Release us to share freely together in mission and rejuvenate us to be fruitful in your service. Give us courage, wisdom and compassion, that strengthened with the grace of the Holy Spirit, we may as the Diocese of Sheffield, both flourish and grow through Christ our Lord. Amen.


As a parish we take seriously the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults. We have formally adopted the House of Bishops 'Promoting a Safer Church' policy statement and a copy is displayed in the church. The Church Council has a current Parish Safeguarding Policy relating to children and vulnerable adults. A current DBS is in place for the parish Safeguarding Representative and for those meeting the eligibility criteria.

The Parish Safeguarding Representative is Tony Lindley who along the with the Parish Priest are ultimately responsible for any matters of concern relating to children and vulnerable adults. Contact details are on display in the parish church.
