At St Johns we are recognised for having a rich heritage in Marian devotion. We honour Our Lady to draw nearer to her Son, Jesus.

Rosary Before Mass - held in the Lady Chapel before each Daily and Weekend Mass, all are welcome to join in a shared Rosary in preparation of the holy sacrifice of the Mass.

Our Lady of Bath & Our Lady’s Dowry - the most recent addition to St Johns is the Statue of Our Lady of Bath in the Garden. This auspicious gift has come at a time when England is being Rededicated as Our Lady’s Dowry. Please visit www.dowrytour.org.uk to learn more.

Consecration to The Immaculate Heart of Mary - In allowing Mary to mother us by consecrating ourselves, our families, our projects and our parishes, we give ourselves to Christ in a powerful way, in service and in love. Email the team to learn more at marysimmaculateheart@gmail.com.

Adoration Chapel - Our Lady of Bala - Fatima, Czelstohowa & Guadalupe - paying a visit to our Adoration Chapel reveals particular locations around the world where our Parish Community has a connection with Our Lady - Portugal, Poland & Mexico.

Lady Chapel - The altar, brought from an earlier church in Bath with a highly decorated reredos, has a frontal illustrating the presentation of the Virgin Mary in the Temple. Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman is reputed to have celebrated Mass in this chapel whilst visiting Bath.
