Last Secondary Transfer Meetings on Tuesday.

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-NINTH SUNDAY OF THE YEAR

FIGHTING FOR TRUE FREEDOM FOR ALL IN OUR WORLD TODAY

     In today’s Gospel Jesus walks that delicate tight-rope between politics and religion. It seems like an almost perfect trap set for him by his enemies – if he speaks out against paying taxes to Rome he could be arrested for inciting rebellion, but if he supports this taxation by Israel’s oppressors he will be seen to betray the people who yearn to be free from Roman rule. But Jesus silences them with his inspired answer – firstly by taking a Roman coin and telling them to give back to Caesar what belongs to Caesar. And then he states the more important principle – give back to God what belongs to God, which is everything!

Today these tensions have not gone away – we should neither over-spiritualise our faith and ignore injustice, nor over-politicise our faith and forget that everything begins and ends in prayer. In our journey of faith, we seek to come closer to God, to learn from Him how to live, how to love and then do our best to put this into practice in our everyday lives. This is why the Church has always and should always play such a crucial role in education, health-care, fighting against poverty and injustice in the world... We have a unique voice to bring to the human family’s conversation – a voice which should be heard!

Looking at the evils of our world today Pope Francis has urged the Church to give a particular lead in the fight against human trafficking. We often imagine that slavery is a thing of the past but it is a shocking truth that there are more men, women and children trapped in slavery today than at any other time of human history. This Sunday afternoon in Pope John School we have a unique opportunity to understand this shameful truth and learn how to fight against it with the performance of Ten Ten Theatre’s incredible play This is My Body. I cannot urge you strongly enough to come along. It is a life-changing play.

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

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.
