Our present community is the result of three parishes coming together under the charge of one priest. St Augustine’s serves Meir, which is a large housing development on the southern edge of Stoke-on-Trent. This was joined by St Mary’s, Cresswell in 2001. St Mary’s is to the south east of Meir and situated in open countryside on the edge of the Staffordshire Moorlands. Then, in 2012, St Filumena’s, Caverswall became the third parish to join us to make our present community. Caverswall has a boundary with both the Meir and Cresswell parishes.

Churches are preparing to open for private prayer from the 15th June. But this can only happen once we have formally assessed how this can be achieved safely for everyone. More details will follow in the bulletin. A message from Cardinal Vincent Nichols is here: Opening of churches for private prayer
In response to the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic we are no longer able to gather for public acts of worship in our Catholic churches in England and Wales. This will begin from Friday evening, 20 March 2020, until further notice. Cardinal Vincent Nichols offers a message of hope with Jesus Christ at its centre.
