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 Communications Group - a PPC priority group

What is the PPC ?
The PPC (Parish Pastoral Council) works in collaboration with the Priest/Clergy for the time being of the Parish under the direction of the Bishop of Westminster. The PPC is called to participate with the Priest/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, responding to the call of Christ to Peter "Feed my lambs, feed my sheep."
