Welcome to the parish website of The Church of The Most Precious Blood‚ Sidmouth within the Roman Catholic Diocese of Plymouth. Our parish priest is Canon Paul Cummins and he lives in the presbytery.
Everyone is welcome here, no matter who you are or where you are on your faith journey. If you have lost touch with us for a while we would be delighted to see you again and listen to your story.
As we enter the special season of Lent, I pray that it may be for you a time where you can rediscover the richness of God's love for you.
This weekend is Laetare (Rejoice) Sunday – a relaxation of the penitential character of Lent, or if you prefer, a little breather in the middle of Lent. We look with expectation and anticipation to the joy of Easter, giving us hope and encouragement as we continue our journey towards the paschal feast. Also known as Rose Sunday due to an ancient papal tradition of blessing golden roses, we now mark it with rose/pink vestments, so this year we encourage you all to wear something rose or pink to Mass and rejoice!
As well as all that, a reminder that the clocks go forward one hour - don’t forget or you’ll miss out on the rejoicing!
