Last Minute Change this Weekend

 Fr Bede has sustained a back injury, and cannot stand or sit. He will not be able to cover any of the Masses in the four parishes this weekend. This means that there are some last-minute cancellations. 

There will be no Mass in Wells. 

The Saturday evening in Shepton is cancelled. 

The Sunday 9am in Cheddar is cancelled. 

We are very sorry indeed about this, and apologise for the inconvenience. I do ask you too to pray for Fr Bede's swift recovery.

The Masses that will take place this weekend 29th/30th August are as follows:


Saturday 6pm - Glastonbury
Sunday 9am - Shepton Mallet
Sunday 10.30am - Glastonbury
Sunday 11am - classroom at Cheddar, with Fr Wally
Sunday 12.15 - Latin Mass in Glastonbury
Sunday 5pm - Glastonbury.

Once again I am sorry about this. We will keep you informed. Weekday Masses continue as normal.
Thank you 
Fr AR

Mass Figures Weekend 22/23 August

 The Mass figures for the weekend 22/23 August


The figure in brackets the lower end of how many 'units' can attend. A unit can be one single person, or a whole family/household/bubble - or even those who have travelled together in the same car.So the figure in the brackets can increase. So in Shepton it may be only that 40 single people attend, but if they are in bubbles/families/households/cars, then the number can be much larger.


Shepton Saturday 6.00pm - 21  (40) - down 12
Glastonbury Saturday 6.00pm - 44 (50) - down 18
Cheddar Sunday 9.00am - 22 (25) - down 3
Shepton Sunday 9.00am - 35 (40) - up 5
Wells * Sunday 10.30am - 19 (16) - up 3
Glastonbury Sunday 10.30am - 42 (50) - down 1
Cheddar Sunday 11am - no information
Glastonbury Sunday 12.15 - 31 (50) - down 12
Glastonbury Sunday 5.00pm - 21 (50) - up 2

This Mass is for the vulnerable who cannot travel, many thanks for keeping the numbers at this low level, it is essential so that the Mass can continue.

Our numbers this weekend were down 36 on the weekend before over the four parishes. 

Over the past weeks the numbers have been 231, 223, 220, 223, 271, 235


235 people came to Mass in total. Our Mass figures would normally have been 573.

Data based on four point simple rolling average:

237.25 (generated 23/08/20)

234.25 (generated 16/08/20)

224.25 (generated 09/08/20)

[For those interested in statistical analysis, I have started using a four point simple rolling average. This should iron out statistical inconsistencies and give a clearer view of the trends within the four parishes as a whole. If for whatever reason the numbers are inflated or deflated for one weekend, four point rolling averages help to level out these outliers.]

[For those interested in statistical analysis, I have started using a four point simple rolling average. This should iron out statistical inconsistencies and give a clearer view of the trends within the four parishes as a whole. Thus, although it may seem that this week's numbers show a great increase and 'getting back to normal', at least 30 were visitors to the parish in two large groups who will not be here next weekend. Four point rolling averages help to level out these outliers.]

Face Masks



From next weekend, the Government has said that we must wear face masks at Holy Mass. 

We have not heard from our own Bishop or the Bishops of England and Wales yet, but I'm sure they will confirm the law before next weekend. If not, then we will follow the law anyway. 

If you are exempt, then please do not wear a face mask. As a general rule of thumb... if you wear a mask to go shopping, then wear a mask to come to Church.

(p.s. this is the 1000th post!)
