Planning Permission for St Marys Church

St. Mary’s Dunstable.The presbytery at St Mary’s was built to house a number of Vincentian Priests when they were running the parish. Now that the Diocese is running the parish the presbytery is far too big for one priest and is a drain on parish finances. It is also in need of repair works.The church is also in need of significant repairs. The windows are single glazed and are a major factor in the significant heat loss from the building which is very costly to heat and very negative from an environmental view point. Now that the church has been listed these works will be more costly.In consultation with the Vincentians, out of courtesy, the Diocese has decided to demolish the presbytery and carry out a small development of affordable housing which is in great demand in Dunstable and very much in keeping with our mission. The development will also include a bungalow for the parish priest.This development will release money for the parish to carry out the necessary repair works on the church and improve its thermal performance.A submission to the Local Authority for Planning Permission for the above will be made this month.

2) Donation can go through the online Virginmoneygiving. They included details of the parish name and area or parish priest (Easter offering) that the donation is intended.

To use the Donation page on the main Diocesan website go direct to: to https://northamptondiocese.org/donate/

3) From enquiries we have received we understand that some of our parishioners would prefer to donate by telephone instead of via our online donation facilities. Therefore, in addition to the online donation facilities currently available, we are proposing to begin a ‘Giving Tuesday’ commencing on Tuesday the 5th of May 2020. Each Tuesday between 10:00am and 4:00pm, people will be able to call this number, 01604 712065, and donate to your parish. All they will require is their debit or credit card to hand when they call.  They can make a one-off donation to cover their missed Sunday offerings or call each week knowing their offering is going to the parish they wish.
