Welcome to the friendly community of 

St. Peter's Catholic Church, Hazel Grove

During this difficult time we remember John 16:32 - "The hour is coming, indeed it has come, when you will be scattered, every man to his home, and will leave me alone; yet I am not alone, for the Father is with me". We are mindful of our Father's presence amongst us in our community, always.

Welcome to St. Peter's and St. Philip's

Masses over the weekend at St Peter’s are 12 noon on Saturday and 8:30am, 10am and 6pm on Sundays. There is also a Mass in Polish on Saturday evening at 6pm in St Peter’s. Weekday Masses are at 12 noon.

Mass at St Philip’s in Offerton is at 6pm on Saturday and 9:15am on Wednesday

The church will be open for Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament on Saturday from 11 to 11:45am and Fr Peter will be available for Reconciliation during Exposition.

Mass and Exposition from St Peter’s will be broadcast on churchservices.tv/stockport.

To book a Baptism please get in touch with Fr Peter via email.

Coronavirus (updated 19th July 2021)

During the coronavirus pandemic our church is still open for Mass. 

In line with the latest government guidance, restrictions at Mass are being lifted but, as the Prime Minister said the other day, "We are still in the pandemic."

We are moving forward cautiously so that everyone will feel safe in attending Mass in our church.

We will increase capacity in both our churches over the next few days and it will no longer be necessary to reserve a place at the weekend Masses. There will still be some distancing between pews in church to allow people to continue to feel safe.

The distribution of Holy Communion will revert to the normal arrangement of approaching the sanctuary and, from Sunday 24th July, there will be some live singing at the 10am Mass at St Peter's.

We would ask you in both churches to continue sanitising your hands on entering and leaving church, to respect other people’s space and to please wear a mask which covers your mouth and nose in church.

A message from our Parish Priest

Father Peter Sharrocks
Welcome to our website which I hope you will find helpful and informative. Despite the current restrictions there is still a lot going on in the parish thanks to technology. The numbers watching our streamed Masses and Rosaries have been most encouraging. We have held various meetings and gatherings via Zoom including virtual teas and coffees after Mass on Sundays. It has been a good way of keeping people in touch with each other. I hope you like this picture of Christ the Healer which I received some time ago at the beginning of ‘lockdown

Here is a useful guide to "Prayers when there is no Mass" as well as a short video on how to prepare for Mass through a live stream.

For those Parishioners who normally give in the collection at Mass and wish to help the Parish at this time, here is an online donation page to allow you to donate to the Parish. Please be aware that a minimum donation of £5 is requested if giving in this way. The page can also be used to set up a regular monthly donation, and you can also Gift Aid your donation to help the Parish further. If you want to Gift Aid your donation, please tick the box shown on the screen even if you have previously completed a Gift Aid Declaration form in favour of the Parish for regular giving made by Offertory Envelope or Standing Order. Thank you for your support.

May God bless you and yours, Fr. Peter.
Christ the Healer
A prayer from the Presidents of the Bishop's Conference of Europe 

God our Father, Creator of the world, almighty and merciful, out of love for us You sent your Son into the world as the doctor of our souls and our bodies, look upon your children who, in this difficult time of confusion and dismay in many regions of Europe and the world, turn to you seeking strength, salvation and relief, deliver us from illness and fear, heal our sick, comfort their families, give wisdom to our rulers, energy and reward to our doctors, nurses and volunteers, and eternal life to the dead. Do not abandon us in the moment of trial but deliver us from all evil. We ask this of Thee, who with the Son and the Holy Spirit, live and reign for ever and ever. Amen.
