Mass for the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe (22nd November)

Welcome to our parish website

Our Catholic parish in Melton Mowbray (Leicestershire, UK), is part of the Grantham deanery within the Diocese of Nottingham.

We have two places of worship, the parish church of St John the Baptist and by kind permission of the Franciscan Sisters Minoress, St Francis' Convent Chapel.

Saint John the Baptist, Pray for Us

Celebration of Mass at St John's

During the four-week national lockdown (5th November - 2nd December) the gathering of people for communal worship is prohibited. The public celebration of mass at St John's has therefore been temporarily suspended.

9:00am Sunday Mass is now live streamed from St John's.

The church will be open for private prayer every Tuesday and Sunday 11:00am - 12:00pm.
