St Mary’s Catholic Church

Our Church building is a real focal point on Ewenny Road.  The round tower, built from the Ewenny stone of the original church, with the cross, made locally at Merthyr Mawr, illuminated at night, is a fine symbol of our Catholic Faith.

The fine artwork in our church and the offering of the Mass and other Sacraments, the quiet prayer as people call into the church to pray before the Blessed Sacrament and the enjoyable gatherings and meetings in our parish hall, all remind us of the joy, beauty and liveliness of our faith.

Of course, we are the living stones of the Church.  St Mary’s is not just a building, a meeting place, a hall or community centre.  It is where we come together and where we encounter the living God and worship Him and share our faith with others.  It is a consecrated and holy place.  At its centre are the Tabernacle and altar, where we encounter the Living Presence of Jesus Christ. All are welcome – it is He who welcomes us and calls us to welcome others.

The parish supplies a chaplaincy at the Princess of Wales Hospital, it is important that if you have a family member or a friend admitted that would like to see the Chaplain please inform Father Tim McGrath on 01656 652034

There is a long history of Catholicism around the Bridgend area.

Despite the challenges presented by Covid-19 Marriage Care, in partnership with The Cardiff Archdiocese, continues to provide support to local couples at all stages of their relationship. By moving both their Counselling & Marriage Preparation Services to webcam delivery Marriage Care have been able to continue providing both services, in a timely manner, without having to worry about lockdowns or social distancing.

Their marriage preparation and support service enable couples to nurture faithful and fruitful marriages that last, as they draw on Catholic teaching and contemporary research to help couples focus on the quality of their relationship with each other.

Through their relationship counselling service, they accompany, with compassion and practical wisdom, couples who find themselves in need of support on their journey. Recognising that the coronavirus pandemic has both increased stress and can lead to financial difficulties they remain unique in asking couples who come for counselling only to pay what they can afford, reflecting their commitment to support those most in need.
