Welcome to Our Lady of the Portal & St Piran

As part of the Diocese of Plymouth, the Parish of St Piran’s is committed to the Diocesan Vision Statement where we are called to become fully a...

As a parish we are above all a community of people called together by God to live out our Christian life of witness in the world. This leaflet says a little about how we try and do this, and also invites you to share in the life of being a Celebrating, Caring, Learning and Living Church.

A Learning Church

There are opportunities for young people to learn about their faith and also to share the life of the Church in different ways - see the page 'Children and Young People'. The Journey in Faith group (RCIA) meets to share the Catholic faith with those people who wish to explore issues of faith and to prepare enquirers, if they so decide, to be Received into the Catholic Church at Easter. The Adult Education programme provides opportunities to learn more about matters of faith, and a number of gifted speakers come to the Parish to give talks in the evenings and on Saturdays. The programme exists to help members of the Parish to grow in their knowledge and love of God.

A Living Church

At St. Piran’s, we make a great effort to welcome visitors and holidaymakers to our Church, and we like to feel that we are a very friendly and welcoming Parish. We also try to play our part in the local community in a great many ways - these are often highlighted in the Parish newsletter, and we work with other local Churches and are a member of ‘Churches Together in Truro’. The porch notice board carries a range of material about what’s going on in the Parish and in the local community.


We welcome YOU today!
