Welcome

It is with great sadness that, in response to the request made by Prime Minister to close all places of worship our church is closed for the forseable future. This is something that is completely supported by our archbishop Cardinal Vincent and the Catholic Bishop's Conference of England & Wales. In addition all Baptisms and Confirmations are postponed. However, I will continue to offer Mass daily, in private, and you will all be rembered in my prayers. God bless you and let us all pray for each other, our nation and our world.  Father Gerard

As public Masses cannot be celebrated at this time, it is generally no longer appropriate for priests to celebrate Mass more than once a day, including on Sundays.  This might mean that some Masses which were to be celebrated for a special intention will now not be celebrated.  In these situations, and only whilst these very exceptional circumstances continue, it might be necessary for a Mass to be celebrated for more than one intention.  Should any member of the faithful who has arranged to have a Mass celebrated for a specific intention not wish to have that intention included with other intentions in what is known as a Collective Intention Mass  s/he should contact the parish office on 020 7226 0257.
