A Short History of the Catholic Parish of St. Cuthbert Mayne

  For over 90 years the small scattered parish of St. Cuthbert Mayne at Launceston in rural
  north Cornwall has hosted a Diocesan Pilgrimage in honour of St. Cuthbert Mayne, the
  secondary patron of our Diocese, who was martyred for the Faith in November 1577.
  The parish was founded in 1886 by a former Anglican clergyman, and our interesting and
  unusual church building is now recognised as the National Shrine of St. Cuthbert Mayne.
  With the help of a scrapbook compiled 45 years ago by local historian Arthur Wills, Fr.
  David has written a short history of the parish with over 70 illustrations, some of which are
  more than 100 years old.
  The History costs £3, plus £1.10 postage and packing.

The Launceston Pilgrimage

    A short, lavishly illustrated History of the Launceston Pilgrimage. Begun in 1921, the
   pilgrimage drew thousands of Catholics to  honour and remember St. Cuthbert Mayne,
   priest and martyr, who was executed in Launceston on 30th November 1577.  


  The History costs £5, plus postage and packing.
