We welcome you to the webpage of the Roman Catholic Church of
St Mary’s, Hampstead. Our Parish Priest is Mgr Phelim Rowland.

Our Parish is celebrating its Bicentenary, having been opened on Saturday, 17th August, 1816, by The Rt. Revd. Dr William Poynter.

Abbé Jean Morel served as its first Parish Priest, having been forced to flee from France as a refugee in 1792 and becoming pastor to the local Catholic community in Hampstead in 1796.

As part of our Bicentenary celebrations, we have planned special talks and events throughout the year.

View our Bicentenary Calendar of Events (pdf, or view online) and read more about the history of St Mary’s.

We also have a Pastoral website, where you can view information on our Sacramental Programmes, CCD classes, volunteering opportunities, and other resources.

Finally, we are the first Parish in the UK to have an app, as part of myParish (iOS/Android). Download it for updates such as important Parish announcements, our weekly newsletter, daily readings, etc.

You will find us near Hampstead station (Northern Line), via Church Row on the lower end of Heath Street (map). Buses 46 and 268 also serve the area.
