• Welcome to the Church of Our Lady, Queen of Martyrs, & St Ignatius

Welcome to the Pilgrimage Shrine of the Dorset Martyrs

Situated in the picturesque village of Chideock, on the Jurassic Coast, this Church is a place of great spirituality and inspiration and a Marian shrine.

The Church of Our Lady, Queen of Martyrs, & St Ignatius in Chideock is situated within the Parish of Bridport in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Plymouth. Our church is along a quiet country lane (North Road), about a ten minute, easy walk from St Giles Church and the Weld Memorial Chapel.

There is a parking area just beyond the entrance. Vigil Masses are held on 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month at 6 pm, and every Friday at 10 a.m. Masses are attended by local people from the Bridport area and also by many people visiting this beautiful area.


It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Canon Richard passed away peacefully at home in the early hours of 13th June. There will be a Requiem Mass for him at Bridport at 6pm on Monday 1st July, followed by refreshments and then a prayer vigil. On Tuesday 2nd July there will be a Funeral Mass at 2.30pm in Sherborne Abbey.
