Join the Roman Catholic communities of Brigg and Barton Upon Humber in North Lincolnshire
Two Church Communities with Jesus, Son of God, The Word Made Flesh, and The (Sunday) Eucharist, the source and summit of our salvation, as its foundation and strength. It is Jesus, who invites us, and is the host, and The Living Bread, who feeds us through Word and Sacrament, and sends us out to proclaim The Good News.

“As the Parish Priest of the Catholic Parishes of St Augustine Webster, Barton Upon Humber, and St Mary’s, Brigg, may I welcome you to read these pages about our two Parishes but more especially may I say you would be warmly welcome to come and celebrate Holy Mass, and other services, with us, and take part in our various Parish activities.
“Here on this site you will find brief histories of the two Parishes, our contact details, and be able to access our Weekly Bulletin which gives up to date information about worship, and other activities.
“We share the hope that all peoples will come to knowledge of Jesus Christ, as we believe he is The Way, The Truth and The Life. (John 14:6).”

IF YOU REQUIRE A PRIEST URGENTLY, please first contact the Parish and if no reply, then in the case of DANGER TO life or death, and not for routine enquiries, please phone St Bernadette’s 01724 844895 or Holy Trinity on 01472 342301. It is important that you do not contact them for any general parish enquiries, but only if a person is in hospital, or in danger of death at home. Thank You.
LEAVING VOICEMAILS FOR THE PARISH (PRIEST): Although it will seem counter intuitive, please DO NOT leave a voicemail message on the Parish mobile phone. For much of the day, every week, and throughout the week, it is not accessible. Messages left on the landline, or an email are the best option. (The mobile is answered at those times it is accessible, but throughout the day the most practical is to leave a message on the landline. Thank You.)
AN INVITATION FOR THE BISHOPS’ CONFERENCE OF ENGLAND AND WALES FOR PENTECOST SUNDAY 2022.
THE NEW EVANGELISATION:
a call to witness to Jesus Christ in YOUR Parish.
A FRIEND DOESN’T DISTANCE THEMSELVES FROM THOSE THEY LOVE, OR DESERT THEM.
BECOME A FRIEND OF OUR CATHEDRAL, AND A TRUE FRIEND OF YOUR PARISH.
WE SAY TO EVERYONE: COME HOME TO CHURCH. JESUS INVITES YOU, AND WE NEED YOU.
SUPPORT YOUR PARISH ACTIVELY THROUGH PRAYER AND BY WORSHIPPING THERE, YOUR ACTIVE PRESENCE AND COMMITMENT TO VOLUNTARY ROLES, AND MATERIAL (FINANCIAL) SUPPORT.
DON’T DRIVE PAST. COME HOME!
The gathering of the Parish Community, as one, especially on a Sunday and Holyday, is central to the life and mission of The Church. OUR BISHOPS INVITE EVERYONE WHO HASN’T BEEN TO HOLY MASS, IN RECENT TIMES, TO COME BACK TO HOLY MASS, as we move forward. They also extend a warm welcome, as do we, to all those seeking to understand how God is, already, at work in their lives. Please see our respective Parish “news” pages for their invite/reflection.
COME BACK TO HOLY MASS, PLEASE! It is Jesus who invites you and you will be most welcome.
“And on the day called Sunday, all who live in cities or in the country gather together to one place, and the memoirs of the apostles or the writings of the prophets are read, as long as time permits; then, when the reader has ceased, the president verbally instructs, and exhorts to the imitation of these good things. Then we all rise together and pray, and, as we before said, when our prayer is ended, bread and wine and water are brought, and the president in like manner offers prayers and thanksgivings, according to his ability, and the people assent, saying Amen; and there is a distribution to each, and a participation of that over which thanks have been given, and to those who are absent a portion is sent by the deacons. And they who are well to do, and willing, give what each thinks fit; and what is collected is deposited with the president, who succours the orphans and widows and those who, through sickness or any other cause, are in want, and those who are in bonds and the strangers sojourning among us, and in a word takes care of all who are in need. But Sunday is the day on which we all hold our common assembly, because it is the first day on which God, having wrought a change in the darkness and matter, made the world; and Jesus Christ our Saviour on the same day rose from the dead.” St Justin, Martyr – written between 153 -55
HOLY MASS AND OTHER SERVICES:
Masses and other Services from Brigg are normally on Zoom. The ID is 992 962 6557 and the ID does not change and so we ask you to note it for future use. It is essential that ALL users mute their mics for the benefit of all every time they join in.

Confessions (The Sacrament of Reconciliation):
Saturday 5.15 – 5.45pm in Brigg, and Sunday 8.30 -8.50 am in Barton.
It remains possible, and it has always been so, to celebrate the Sacrament, at other times, by making an appointment with the Priest.
We can happily say, that since July 2020 people in both Parishes have celebrated, on request, in covid safe conditions, and significant numbers did so. However, so as to facilitate both a “Private” (anonymous) , and a “Face to Face” meeting, during the published times, they will be held in “The Day Chapel” (AKA The Sacristy) in Brigg, and The Parish Room in Barton during the published times. The individual can choose whether to kneel behind a Screen, or face to face. Ideally people will arrive as early as possible during the session, and no-one will approach the priest after 8.45 am (in Barton) and 5.40 pm in Brigg, as it is necessary for the priest to prepare for Mass. If needs be, Confessions will continue after the relevant Mass. (Please the lnote about The Sacrament in its fullness, under “The Sacrament Tab on the Menu above.)
