Welcome to

Parish of Wrexham Maelor

„I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.
No one can come to the Father except through me.” 

[John 14:6]

Welcome to our parish website here at the Church of St Anne, Wrexham and Our Lady and Welsh Martyrs, Overton,  a parish in the Catholic Diocese of Wrexham, North Wales.  We hope that you will find it useful and enjoy these pages giving a snapshot of a vibrant and active Catholic parish in North Wales.

Restoring Holy Communion under both kinds

After an absence of over two years, we will soon be able to start offering again the opportunity to receive the Precious Blood from the Chalice during Mass. The Church teaches that Holy Communion ‘has a fuller sign when it takes place under both kinds, for in this form, the sign of the Eucharistic banquet is more clearly evident.’ Put simply, Jesus said ‘take and eat, take and drink…’ It will be each individual’s choice whether they receive from the Chalice or not, but we will begin offering it at every Mass in the parish, starting on the solemnity of The Most Holy Body & Blood of the Lord (11th June) There is a leaflet available at the back of Church and on our website, outlining the meaning of Eucharist, our celebration of Mass, and giving some context to this re-introduction of the Chalice.

Prayer for Ukraine


Loving God,
We pray for the people of Ukraine,
for all those suffering or afraid,
that you will be close to them and protect them.

We pray for world leaders,
for compassion, strength and wisdom to guide their choices.

We pray for the world
that in this moment of crisis,
we may reach out in solidarity
to our brothers and sisters in need.

so that peace and justice
become a reality for the people of Ukraine
and for all the world.


The Chaplet of The Divine Mercy

How to Recite the Chaplet

The Chaplet of Mercy is recited using ordinary Rosary beads of five decades. 

1. Make the Sign of the Cross

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.


2. Our Father

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, Amen.


3. Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.


4. The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; He descended into hell; on the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty; from there He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.


5. The Eternal Father

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.
