Cardinal’s Appeal 2020: Responding to Coronavirus

The Cardinal’s Lenten Appeal has been extended to help those who are in desperate need due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Funds raised will be available for parishes and schools across Westminster Diocese to respond to the needs of their local communities. Our parish has already received support from Caritas Westminster to help those in need locally. If you are able to contribute to support this cause and help this work continue we would be very grateful. You can donate online at

There is further information at this link

Prayers for the Pandemic: for keyworkers

God of a day’s work,
who knew the early start,
the long shift, the thankless task,
help us to ‘see’ keyworkers in the pandemic
in a new and lasting way –
the ones who leave home to mingle
with the virus

to keep us fed,
keep us safe, keep us clean,
to care for us: in school, in care, in intensive care;
help us to help them by being careful ourselves
and remembering, on the other side of this,
who deserves our esteem, our national applause,
our lasting care.
