Continually strengthening our knowledge of the mystery of God and the role of Jesus in our salvation is an essential part of the modern day parish. It is vital in developing the role of various ministries within the church - the catechist, the liturgy planner, the Eucharistic minister to name only a few. The Parish Library aims to provide resources which will further this development.




The library provides a selection of books to enable parishioners to deepen their understanding of their faith. It also has books of devotional readings and some related resources to support academic studies.

All parishioners are welcome to borrow books from the Parish Library which is situated in the sitting room of St Benedict's, the Parish Office. You can visit any time during the day except on Monday and books can be borrowed by signing and dating the Borrowing Book. If the door is locked please contact Fr Paul or Maria, the Parish Secretary, on 01342 710313 to obtain the entrance code
