Welcome to St Pancras
The Catholic Church serving Central Ipswich
(For times of services please scroll down.)
A warm welcome from all at St Pancras, whether you are a new parishioner, a returning parishioner, or a visitor.
Deum diligere et quae sunt Dei.
‘To love God and the things of God.’
A Catholic parish has just two purposes, namely to give glory to Almighty God, and to work and pray for the salvation of souls. Our parish church, St Pancras, is a sacred space, consecrated to the worship of God, where sins are forgiven and souls are saved by our Saviour’s mercy and love for us, and, in turn, through our ever deepening love of God and the things of God. It is through His divine and sanctifying grace, received in the Sacraments, that we are lifted up to a supernatural plane and become ‘partakers of the divine nature’ (2 Peter 1:4). Catholics are called by God to avoid becoming of the world even though we live in the world (Jn 17:16). Instead, we seek the things that are above, and aim to store up treasures in heaven rather than here on earth (Col 3:1; Mt 6:20).
Our church is open from approximately 7am to 7pm every day. See below for times of Masses and Confessions, and see our newsletter for full details.
O Mary, channel of Divine grace, pray for us.
O glorious St Pancras, pray for us.
