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.

Our Parish Mission Statement:


“We are here to make Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament better known, loved, honoured, worshiped and adored. All of our efforts in this parish will be geared towards helping every individual to discover the Lord waiting for them to approach Him in the tabernacle”.

God became Man. The one who said: 'let there be earth and sun, sea and sky' says: 'This is my Body'. That miracle, known as the Real Presence of God (under the appearance of 'bread') is the reason for our parish being here in Isle of Wight. Everything else we do flows from and back to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, which is why we are committed to spreading this Good News.  

I'd like to welcome you to the parish via this website and I hope you will find what you need here.

If not, please contact me!

with all good wishes, and prayers,

Fr Marcin Drabik, Parish Priest
