Guild National Mass
National Guild Mass
The Archdiocese of Birmingham is privileged to have been asked to host the National Mass for the Guild of Saint Stephen, on behalf of the Archconfraternity in Westminster.
Archbishop Bernard Longley will be principal celebrant and homilist at the Mass, to which servers from across the country are invited, on Saturday 25th September 2021 at 12 noon, at the parish of Ss. Mary & John, Wolverhampton. After Mass, there will be refreshments in parish centre.
We are grateful to Fr. Paweł Bielak, the Pauline Fathers and the parish community for hosting us.
Although we hope all COVID restrictions will have been lifted, for the comfort and safety of all attending, we will be operating a booking system for FREE tickets for this event. We intend to have bookings opening at the beginning of July, when we hope to have clear picture of COVID safety requirements.
How to get there:
Ss. Mary & John
Wolverhampton is well-served by transport links, for those from the Archdiocese of Birmingham and beyond. The train and bus stations are around 10 mins walk away.
There is ample nearby paid parking, such as:
NCP The Wulfrun Centre - WV1 3BA
NCP Summer Row - WV2 4L
St. George's - WV2 1BD
Bell Street, the Mander Centre - WV1 3RP
The nearby St. John's retail park should not be used, as parking is strictly for a maximum of 2 hours, no return.
Coaches are able to drop off outside the church. Please note that there is very little parking at the church itself, which is only by prior arrangement with us.
If you arrive early in Wolverhampton, you can visit shops, buy refreshments and access toilets at the nearby Wulfrun Centre. The Parish Hall will be open for vesting from 11am.
