Our Parish

Just after Easter in 2018, on the retirement of Fr Ian McCarthy,  Fr.Stephen Lambert, a married priest of the Ordinariate, (Google https://ordinariate.net for more information on the Ordinariate), became Priest in Charge of Our Lady and St. Kenelm’s Catholic Church at Stow on the Wold. The Church serves the villages of Stow on the Wold, Bourton on the Water, and the surrounding villages, including Northleach. 

We are within the Diocese of Clifton but we are almost an island as Burford, Broadway and Chipping Norton Catholic parishes lie within the Archdiocese of Birmingham.

Our Lady and St Kenelm’s Church in Stow was extensively refurbished in October and November 2023.
