The Parishioners of St Michael and All Angels would like to welcome you to their parish.

The Belmont parish is part of the Herefordshire Catholic Deanery within the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Cardiff. Our Archbishop, the Most Rev George Stack was appointed bishop on 19 April 2011 by His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI.

One of the first things you will notice about this parish, which makes it very different to almost all other parishes in this country, is that it shares its church with Benedictine monks! The parish actually predates the monastery by a few years and until 1859 used the chapel of St Peter & St Paul (now the Parish Centre) for Mass. Today, respecting the wishes of Belmont’s great benefactor, Mr Francis Richard Wegg-Prosser, the parish shares the church with the monastic community.

Message from the Parish Priest

Dear Parishioners and Friends of the Parish,

I extend a very warm welcome to our Parish website. Whether you have recently moved into the Parish or have been a Parishioner for many years, I hope you will find our website useful, interesting, user-friendly and enjoyable. At the click of a mouse you can access information on all aspects of Parish life and you are invited to keep our website 'live' by contributing news and views.

I hope that this website gives you a flavour of our parish life and maybe that it will inspire you to join one of our parish events or groups. For the most up-to-date information please look at our weekly leaflet which can be found by clicking on the appropriate link and date.


You will notice that our website has various links. Accessing these links will enable you to link up with the Benedictine and Diocesan websites and other worldwide Catholic communities who are also on the Internet.

The Internet is further proof, that technology, properly utilised can advance the honour and glory of God. On World Communications Day in 1989, Pope Saint John Paul II said, “let us pray for wisdom in using the potential of the computer age to serve mans’ human and transcendent calling, and thus give Glory to the Father from whom all good things come”.

What’s On

Belmont Annual Garden Fete

Six weeks only until the Fete!

Once again we are asking for your help in

presenting a wonderful Garden Fete, even better than last year.

It would be great if all the gardeners out there would start growing some plants for the flower stall and if you need small pots for your seedlings -we have a lot of them to give away.

We also need clean and ironed “Nearly New” Clothes. And as always we need bric-a-brac and books, soft toys and children’s toys so we can

make a great success with these stalls.

If you have an idea for a different stall or have any questions or are willing to help run a stall, especially the games please contact Kath Parry on 01981 250304.

We also need items for the Grand Tombola: unwanted presents etc. This is a popular stall and at the moment we have very little for it.

As was mentioned last week, if every parishioner could bring in just one bottle or even two - we could hit the 400 bottles that the Bottle stall needs.

At the moment we have no jewellery or nice handbags for this stall. So if you have anything that you no longer need or use, please pass them on to us.

Please leave all items for the Fete in the Parish Porch not the Glass Porch.

Closer to the date we will ask you for help with items for the Tea Tent.

Many thanks for your help!
