Church open for quiet prayer 8.00am - 7.00pm Weds.

Welcome to the Website of
Our Lady of Fatima Parish, White City.

"Come to me all you who are burdened
and I will give you rest."

 

Our parish is part of the Archdiocese of Westminster and is situated in the heart of London. It is home to a vibrant, exciting and culturally diverse community, sharing our lives and growing in faith together. Our website aims to provide a taste of all the many different groups in our parish, all of which are centred firmly in The Good News of Christ. We strive to provide a loving welcome to all who pass through our parish, but nothing can substitute for coming and sharing in our worship with us.
 
TWENTY-FIRST SUNDAY OF THE YEAR

THE GREAT QUESTION

        I wonder what we each of us might say are the most important questions we have been asked in our life? Perhaps the big wedding day question “Do you take this man/woman..?” for those who are married, or perhaps questions which we answered boldly in our youth which looking back we can see have powerfully shaped the rest of our lives…

       And if we were asked to identify the most important questions which have ever been asked in all of history, I wonder what we might say...? I think I would choose the Angel Gabriel’s question of Mary at the Annunciation if she was willing to give birth to God’s own Son as the most important question of all time. And next in order of importance I would choose the question which we hear Jesus asking the disciples in today’s Gospel – “Who do people say I am?” and then even more directly, “And who do you say I am?” This is the essential question which Jesus continues to ask every human person of every time and every place. The answer we give to this question will, quite simply, shape our whole lives. If we, like Simon Peter, can truly stand up and say “You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God” and believe this with all our body, mind and soul then the way we see everything in our lives and in the world is transformed.

       As Jesus makes clear to Peter, faith is a gift from God – the most precious gift we can ever receive. But it is also something which demands our active response. We see so powerfully on our television screens at the moment how many Christians in Iraq and the Middle East are risking their lives by answering this same question, “Who do you say that Jesus is?” with the faith and courage of Peter in the face of brutal persecution. May they be strengthened and sustained in their faith and may we also ask God for the gift of an ever deeper faith.

With blessings and prayers, Fr Richard, Fr Ephrem & all the parish team.      

 

 

 

   

PLEASE PRAY FOR:

All in our parish, family and friends, who are sick/critically ill – at home, in hospital or nursing homes – that the Lord may comfort and strengthen them. 

All who are on holiday, at home or abroad, that they return refreshed in body and spirit.

Young people as they receive their examination results and plan for the future. May God guide them in their choices and decisions.

For peace and reconciliation in Israel and Palestine, Syria and Iraq.
