Our Lady Tavistock

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.

We are blessed in our Priest, Fr John Greatbatch who has responsibility for the life of the Parish; and in addition ministers to the Ordinariate at the church of St Augustine of Hippo, St Austell, Cornwall.

Through its "Heritage at Risk" programme English Heritage recognises that congregations have a crucial role to play in looking after places of worship. We are pleased to say that for 2010 the winning place for the South West Region was the church of Our Lady and St Mary Magdalen.

2016 has been another joyous year for the parish when five of our young parishioners were Confirmed by Bishop Mark O'Toole. In March there was a Pilgrimage to Lourdes under the auspices of HCPT, when eight children were accompanied by twenty helpers, one being a member of our parish.

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.
