Welcome to the Catholic Parish of Tavistock in West Devon and to the church of Our Lady of the Assumption and St Mary Magdalen. We are a vibrant community with parishioners of all ages participating in parish life. Many of the events are described and illustrated in the "Activities" section of this website. 

Sunday Mass attendance is about 100 parishioners; and more than 200 people attended the two Masses celebrating the Nativity of Our Lord on 24th and 25th December.  A joyous occasion.

In March 2019 the Parish welcomed our new Parish Priest Fr. Martin Stone, when he celebrated his first Mass at our church. In August 2019 there was a reorganisation within the Diocese and Fr. Martin became Parish Priest of Our Lady of the Assumption, Tavistock; and Parish Priest of Holy Cross, Yelverton. 

Now in March 2020 we celebrated the first anniversary of Fr. Martin's arrival. Unfortunately with the Coronus 19 virus rampant throughout the country, Mass can no longer be said as a public act of worship; especially disappointing as we approach the climax of Holy Week.

The building of the Community Facilities at the west end of the church has been completed; and these were blessed by Fr. Martin on 28th July 2019.  The font has been relocated and is now sited just inside the nave. 

The 'Ave Maria' is sung by Hannah Mayhew, and we wish to thank Hannah and Kevin Mayhew Publishers for permission to use this recording on our website.
