Marshalswick Mass Centre
Starting on Sunday, 26th July through to the end of August, Mass at Marshalswick will be celebrated at the Baptist Free Church in Sherwood Avenue while St John Fisher School undergoes refurbishment work. Mass will begin at the earlier time of 8.30am during this period.
We would like to thank Rev. Graham Clarke and the Baptist Church community for this very kind opportunity. To accommodate their community we will endeavour to be finished and out of the church by 9.30am. Priests will need to have shorter sermons and also the music needs to be curtailed to fit our allotted time-scale.


Parish Mission
Our Parish will be holding a Mission conducted by the Sion Community for two weeks (one of preparation and one of mission) from 10th October to 24th October Mission webpages now available - click here for more >>>

The PPC
The Parish Assembly and the Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) - 2017
           
What is the PPC

The PPC (Parish Pastoral Council) works in collaboration with the Priests/Clergy for the time being of the Parish under the direction of the Bishop of Westminster. The PPC is called to participate with the Priests/Clergy for the time being in the Pastoral Ministry of proclaiming God's word, celebrating the sacraments, caring for the faithful, promoting the mission of the Church to the world, and being a good steward of parish resources. The scope includes all the practical matters of Parish life.

What is (was) the Parish Assembly

The parish convenes an Assembly about once every three years. The event is open to the entire parish, and is
the opportunity for us all, as a community to reflect on the time since the previous assembly, review how things have changed, and set the direction for the next three years.

At the most recent meeting, 10th June 2017, the Assembly agreed five areas of strategic importance (some new, and some continuing on from the 2014 Assembly), and set up groups to address them

At the same meeting, new members of the Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) were elected.

Full details of the 2017 Assembly are available here

       
Parish Assembly Following the Assembly in July 2017, we now have new members on the PPC.
