Wiltshire's loss is Somerset's gain

Fr Coulon preaching on the Feast of
the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus last year

Important news: Fr Jean-Patrice Coulon, parish priest of the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Devizes, is moving to a new parish with immediate effect. His new church is the Holy Ghost in Yeovil. This is a sad loss for Wiltshire, but good news for Somerset.

The Holy Ghost, Yeovil

This means that the Latin Mass celebrated every Friday at 6pm and every Second Sunday at 12.15pm in Devizes will no longer take place. We hope that provision will be made for those parishioners who are attached to the Latin Mass in Devizes, and we will of course keep you informed. Similarly, once Fr Coulon has settled into his new parish, we will let you know about Latin Masses being celebrated in Yeovil.

Fr Coulon is a member of the Missionaries of St Francis de Sales, or Fransalians.
May St Francis de Sales guide and protect him as he starts work in his new parish.
