Shepton Mallet

Our Parish

This parish is one of the oldest in the diocese. Shepton Mallet had an organised community at the end of the eighteenth century.

The Motu Proprio Traditionis Custodes

After the publication of the Motu Proprio Traditionis Custodes on July 16th 2021, by Pope Frances, our Bishop stopped the Latin Mass being said in the Diocese of Clifton. Just a few days before he had signed our Constitutions as a Public Association.

Fr  Bede writes: “As we cannot fulfil our Constitutions without saying the Latin Mass (which corresponds to our Benedictine Rule of Life, and is our charism) we have had to leave the Diocese, with the Bishop’s permission, and are looking to the future.

​We are still a canonical body, with a Prior and community, but we are finding our feet in this new liturgical reality.

As we remain faithful to the Liturgy, the Rule and our Constitutions, please keep us in your prayers, and we will let you know where the Holy Ghost leads us.”
