A     A     A     A     A


Welcome to the website of the Parish of St Thomas of Canterbury, Fairford, and St Mary’s, Cricklade.
We are the Catholic community in Fairford, Cricklade, Lechlade and nearly thirty villages.
We have two wonderful churches in: St Thomas (Fairford) and St Mary's (Cricklade) and lots of wonderful parishioners!
As well as the times when we come together to celebrate the Mass you can find information about many other activities and groups, such as:

  • Preparation for the Sacraments
  • Activities for children
  • Becoming a Catholic
  • Coming back if you are a ‘resting’ Catholic
  • Visits to the sick and housebound
  • Supporting charities...

...There are also links for the worldwide Church. Whether you are a visitor or new parishioner you are welcome. We hope you will find the information you require. Please feel free contact us if you have other questions.

St Mary's Church (Cricklade) will be closed for the month of July, for the purpose of redecoration. There will be no weekday services for that month and Sunday Mass will take place in the chapel at Prior Park School, Calcutt Street, Cricklade SN6 6BD, at 9:30am.
Services resume at St Mary's on Sunday 3rd August.

Parish Priest: Fr Philip Beisly
