Roman Catholic Church

Welcome to Saint Gregory the Great in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon


Welcome to St Gregory’s Stratford-upon Avon, a unique Roman Catholic parish, the home of the town’s Catholic Christian community and part of the universal church. It is the birthplace of Shakespeare and is both an historic and a typical English market town which receives many visitors from all over the world. It is also home to an international community, comprising Europeans, especially Poles, and also Phillipinos.

We are a monastic parish run by the Benedictine monks of Douai Abbey in Berkshire. It is situated on the River Avon in the beautiful countryside of South Warwickshire on the edge of the Cotswolds.The parish covers the  town of Stratford and the nearby villages, including Shottery, Wilmcote and Snitterfield. Unusually it borders no fewer than eight other catholic parishes: Wooton Wawen, Hampton-on-the-Hill, Warwick, Kineton, Shipston, Chipping Campden, Bidford and Alcester.

All who come here to worship and to visit, are warmly welcomed as God's children and part of God's family. We hope that they may experience God's love and a spirit of profound prayer. St Gregory's aims to foster that love through personal spiritual development, combined with an active expression of faith by participating in parish life, and by reaching out and caring for the wider community.
