Welcome to the Hemel Hempstead Catholic community. We are a community of two parishes, Hemel East and Hemel West. Within these parishes we have four churches: the Church of the Resurrection, St Mary & St Joseph, Our Lady Queen of All Creation and St Mark's.

Hemel East – We need your help

Continued Live Streaming of Mass

For a while now our Hemel East Mass has been livestreaming to Facebook. This has been working well, but we are not able to get this to all those in our parish of Hemel East who would like to access the Livestream. For this reason we are looking to move to a permanent solution. Click here for the full story

Due to the fast-moving nature of the coronavirus epidemic, we now have a section of this website devoted entirely to it, which is regularly updated. Please click here to visit our coronavirus pages.

Please note that the Church in the UK is currently operating under restrictions imposed in light of the current coronavirus pandemic. This means that Masses cannot be celebrated with a congregation (although we are now live-streaming), and various other rules also apply. To find out more please click here for details from the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales.
