Little Company of Mary Around The World:

Community Centre

Our Community Centre is open to all residents of Mary Potter Courts and Apartments, their families, and the local community.

As a multipurpose hall, it is used for people to socialise, exercise, participate in arts and crafts, play table games, and to celebrate mass. Our monthly guest speaker sessions are a highlight with our community.  Mass is celebrated on Thursdays at 9.30am – All welcome.

The Community Centre is also home to the Little Company of Mary offices and the place to come, if you ever want to find out more about living at Mary Potter Courts or in one of the apartments.

All those who come to our Community Centre are valued and respected. Our principles of love, hospitality, joy and compassion are the foundation of the Centre.

The Community Centre is open to the public every Monday and Thursday – see the programme below for activities and times. We’d love to see you there!

“Thank you for all your work during the year. The work we do in the big room is incredibly healing for people and they often comment on how wonderful it is to be able to use your space.  Betsy and I are very appreciative and feel very blessed and well cared for by you and the energy of the space itself.”  Neave – Mindwise
