Reading Pastoral Area

Diocesan Web Page

Following a long period of consultation, our new Pastoral Areas were launched at Pentecost 2006. However Bishop Philip in 2013 has decided to amalgamate Loddon Valley and Reading Pastoral Areas and to include St Anne's, Caversham which belongs to Brimingham Diocese.

Alongside ourselves, the other parishes in our new Pastoral Area, are:
St John Bosco (Woodley), William of York (Earley), Christ The King (Whitely Wood), St James' (Reading), English Martyrs (Tilehurst), St Joseph's (Tilehurst) and St Anne's (Caversham).

If you need a priest in a hurry and cannot contact your own Parish Priest and live in or near our pastoral area then try the nearest of these to get assistance as quickly as possible.
