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.

PLEASE SEE THE 2023 SYNOD BUTTON FOR THE LATEST PARISH UPDATES.
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.
COVID AND THE OMICRON VARIANT: contact tracing (is recommended by use of the QR Code, or by giving The Vergers your contact details), hand sanitising, and the wearing of Face Coverings is required in all Churches, in part by law, but also as requested by our Bishops.
The Diocese advise:
From Friday 10th December face coverings in places of worship become mandatory by government law, and not just our HS law.
This will apply to Mass, weddings, Funerals or any other events in the church, and is in addition to ventilation and cleaning.
There is no information about wearing masks in other settings, but it is strongly encouraged where people gather indoors with those they do not usually see, so those who run parish groups and events need to review their risk assessments and see if they need to meet, and if so should they be asking people to wear masks. This will of course vary depending on the group, its members, and the venue.
PLEASE USE OUR COVID 19 “BUTTON” TO CHECK THE CURRENT GUIDANCE.
CHRISTMAS MASSES, advance notice: Firstly, to meet the deadline for The Bartonian, a free newspaper, the Masses for Christmas Day were submitted, as they were celebrated last year: Christmas Eve, Friday 24th: the first of Christmas 6.30 p.m. Barton, and 8.30 p.m. (Brigg) Christmas Day (Saturday 25th): 9.00 a.m. Barton, and 11.00 a.m. Brigg. The pattern for future years will be decided at a later date.
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
