Our parish church is situated in Tanners Street, Faversham. Served by Carmelite Friars, the parish embraces the Catholic population of Faversham and the surrounding areas, stretching from Teynham to the east, Old Wives Lees to the south and Dunkirk, Dargate and Waterham to the west.

While we are members of the Roman Catholic Church, we are part of Churches Together in Kent and are fully committed to exploring and working together with other Christian denominations in the area, people of other faiths and all those who seek meaning in their lives.

We hope that as you read these pages you will get a flavour of a dynamic Christian community where diversity finds its unity in our common desire to experience and share the love of God in Jesus Christ.
