Roman Catholic Church

The Parish of Our Lady of Mount Carmel is in the Roman Catholic archdiocese of Southwark and is served by friars of the Order of Carmelites.

The parish embraces the town of Faversham and the surrounding area, stretching to Teynham to the east, Lenham, Charing, Old Wives Lees to the south and Dunkirk, Dargate and Waterham to the west.

Our friendly parish church is in Tanners Street where you will also find the intimate Shrine of St. Jude. The church, shrine and gardens provide a space for tranquillity and peace where you will soon feel at home.

Members of the Roman Catholic church, we are also part of Churches Together in Kent and are fully committed to exploring and working together with other Christian denominations in the area, people of other faiths and all those who seek meaning in their lives.
