PLEASE join us for the Triduum.

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.
 
PALM SUNDAY

    

                   And so our Lenten journey has brought us to Holy Week. These seven days make up the week to which all other weeks in the Church’s year lead – the revelation in all its drama of the total and unconditional love of God for us through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross and his triumph over death in the resurrection. It is as if we feel God’s own heart pounding next to ours.

        This week shows us the drama of our human story, of our journey with God. From the honeymoon excitement of the adoring crowds welcoming Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday to the  intimacy of the Last Supper, from the betrayals and tempests of Good Friday through the emptiness of Holy Saturday to the incredible joy of the Resurrection. The whole point is that we are asked to be active participants in this drama, not passive observers from afar. When we make the time and effort to be close to Jesus during these days, we are touched and transformed by the power of his love. One way to go deeper this week is to think about what you are struggling with in your life at the moment and see what Jesus wants to teach you about this during these days. So if, for example, you are struggling with pride, see how Jesus at every step witnesses to the power of humility – from the lowly donkey he rides on Palm Sunday, to washing the feet of his disciples at the Last Supper and then his total self-sacrifice on Good Friday. Let Jesus be your teacher and guide this week so that you can become more like him.

        Finally, please keep in your prayers those adults from our parish to be baptised and received into full communion with the Church at the Easter Vigil – Owolabi, Julio, Bright, Francis, Antino, Jane, Chanel, Robinson, Henry and Tim. What gifts they are to receive and what a gift they are to us!

With blessings and prayers from Fr Richard, Fr Ephrem & 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.

   The work of CAFOD and all those charities which we are supporting individually through our Lenten almsgiving.    

Peace and reconciliation in Venezuela, the Ukraine, Syria and other areas of conflict.

Those preparing for the sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation in the coming months.

The repose of the soul of Bill Goggin who died last week. May he rest in peace.
