Welcome to the Catholic Parish of Tavistock in West Devon and to the church of Our Lady of the Assumption and St Mary Magdalene. We are a vibrant community with parishioners of all ages participating in parish life.

* Weekly there is a Coffee and Craft morning held in the Parish Meeting Room every Wednesday after Mass.. One of the recent activities has been the knitting of hats, scarfs and gloves for the people of the Ukraine.

* Weekly on a Thursday at 5:00 pm there is Mothers and Grandmothers' Prayer Group.  

* The Rosary prayer group meets weekly

* Seasonal social events with a Speaker

* The St. Vincent de Paul Society (SVP) meet the first Tuesday of the month

* Concerts e.g. for the Tavistock Festival; and in December Nine Lessons and Carols performed by Canoryon Lowen.

Many of these events are described and illustrated in the Activities Section of the parish website. 


The parish is pleased to say we have received a grant from the Lottery Fund for a new sound system; and we wish to thank the Lottery Fund for this grant. 

In addition Tavistock Town Council generously donated 1,500.00 for the Hearing Loop system; our thanks to TTC.
