Welcome to Plym Churches
Welcome to the website for Plym Catholic Churches, which covers the Catholic parishes of Efford, Plympton and Plymstock. We chose the name as we are the 3 parishes the surround the river Plym, and as river Plym brings life and water to Plymouth we hope that from our churches the Holy Spirit will flow forth bringing new life to all.
We aim to encourage fellowship through the celebration of Mass and spiritual and social events. We welcome people of all faiths and none to come and join in with our events. Offering hospitality is an important part of our faith and we are pleased that we regularly have a very diverse group of people that attend.
Sunday Mass - 5pm Saturday
Efford church is a welcoming and friendly, family orientated church. It has an active young people’s programme including children’s liturgy and a regular mass for young people. We also use the Children’s Word on Wednesday leaflets and booklets to supplement children’s liturgy by the family sharing together the forthcoming gospel reading.
Suday Mass - 11am Sunday
The first Mass was celebrated on Sunday July 23rd 1933. As the population and congregation continued to grow, there was need to build a bigger church, this was erected on a site adjacent to the old one and opened and blessed in the name of St Margaret Mary on March 19th 1961.
