*When you can’t go to Mass…* (new resources being added all the time)
Welcome to the Avon Stour Pastoral Area – comprising the Catholic parishes of Christchurch, Southbourne, Fordingbridge, Ringwood, Iford & Highcliffe in Dorset/Hampshire UK within the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portsmouth.
Our Pastoral Area strives to be a community of welcoming, vibrant, growing Catholic parish communities of intentional, fruitful, missionary disciples, rooted in the Father’s love, focused on and in relationship with Jesus Christ, and on fire with the Holy Spirit, united in bringing the love of God to our neighbourhoods through prayer, service and witness.
We would love you to join us!
Fr John Chadwick, Co-ordinating Pastor
