Scope and content

The Roman Catholics in Bampton had been forced to worship in various places in Bampton through the twentieth century including the Town Hall and the room in the old Grammar School now housing our library. This room was for hire and could have been used for dancing and partying the night before with beer on sale and cigarettes being smoked. This was not a pleasing atmosphere in which to worship so a movement was begun to allow the Roman Catholics to use St Mary's from 9-9.45am on a Sunday, which would fit in well with the ringers going in to ring at 9.45. The sharing has been a complete success and the ringers and choir members who rehearse from 9.45 enjoy a couple of minutes of chat with the Roman Catholics as they come out.
