    Woodbridge and Framlingham Roman Catholic Parish is one of fifty parishes in the Diocese of East Anglia.  The parish covers an area of approximately two hundred and seventy square miles in the County of Suffolk, as shown on the map above. There are two churches in our parish, the church of Saint Thomas of Canterbury at Woodbridge and Saint Clare's church at Framlingham.

    We exist

    • to worship God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit
    • to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ in accordance with the teaching of the Catholic Church and in union with our Holy Father, Pope Francis
    • to use the gifts God has given us to do His will and to build His kingdom on earth
    • to serve the people of our parish
    • to be a house and community of prayer in our churches
    • to enable each other to grow in faith, hope and Christian love
    • to be a loving and inclusive parish family.

    May God bless you.

    Father Edmund Eggleston.
