Welcome from
Canon Liam

“St Francis’ Parish in the heart of Maidstone was founded in 1859 and since then has been the heart of the Catholic community in the Maidstone area.

It gives me great joy to welcome you to our website. Whether you are currently a parishioner, somebody who is looking to be part of our parish community or just want to have a browse, we are glad to be here for you.

As you search through the various pages of our website you will see that we are a very diverse community of different ages and nationalities but united as one family of God. Whether it is gathering for worship or for times of fun, we work together to build the kingdom of God and there is room for everyone.

So enjoy your time looking through our website. I am sure you will discover that we are a parish that is filled with faith, charity and generosity and always welcoming anybody who wishes to be part of our family. Together as one we shall share in the Mission of bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to all.

With every blessing.”
