We the Catholic Parish of Newmarket and its neighbourhood seek to be a welcoming community of faith and active love, working as a partnership of clergy and laypeople in order to deepen our faith in Jesus Christ and our prayer life and be effective as a visible and active presence in the local community committed to working with other churches and the local community in caring service for others.


1.     To deepen the spiritual life and religious understanding of parishioners generally and to increase the number of lay people who are able to carry responsibility in the parish alongside the clergy.

2.     To enable the parish community to be more welcoming and to be effective in integrating parishioners of all ages and backgrounds into a more diverse pattern of parish activity.
