Welcome to St Patrick's Sandown, Sacred Heart Shanklin and Our Lady and St Wilfrid's Ventnor

logo We are a Catholic Parish made up of three communities on the Isle of Wight, in the Portsmouth Diocese. South Wight Parish is on the south east of the Island and comprises Sandown, Shanklin and Ventnor. However we serve villages as far as Bembridge, Arreton, Wroxall and Niton.


Invitation to all

                       Rosary prayer in next 54 days.

Dear all,

       I hope that you are all well. I’m writing to confirm that the Rosary group resumes on Sunday for another 54 days! (concluding on the 24th September, the Feast of Our Lady of Walsingham). I have updated the website a little, but I think we will make firm decisions about it all once we have got back into our stride.

         Please note that we are experimenting with the earlier time of 9pm. Zoom will be open from 8.45pm.

The number remains 840 - 3566 - 4749

The website remains for more information:

        Thank you all so much for being part of the last novena!

I do believe that we are accomplishing more than we realise in the spiritual realm. Also we are simply fulfilling Our Lady’s simple, repeated request to pray.
I’m looking forward to ‘seeing’ those of you who can make it on Sunday evening.
God bless,  Anna and Team
