The Confirmations of young people that were postponed in 2020 were finally able to take place in April.

A new Confirmation course is expected to start in the autumn term.  Young people who are currently in Year 8 or above, and who normally attend Mass at St Philip’s, are invited to complete an application to join that course.  Return the form to the Priests House, or email a scanned copy.

First Holy Communion

We expect to start a new preparation course for First Holy Communion in the autumn term.  In order to assess demand for places, we invite parents of children who are currently in Year 2 or Year 3, and who would like to take part in that course, to complete an application form.  Forms are available at the back of the church, or you can download a copy.  Please complete the form, and return it as soon as possible, either by sending it or delivering it to the Priests House, or you can email a scanned copy.


Baptisms are able to take place once again.  For the moment, there is a limit of 30 people at Baptism ceremonies.  A Baptism Application should be completed and returned to the Priests House.


There is the opportunity for Confession on Saturday mornings.  They are held in the Weekday Chapel, entrance near the side door of the church.  Please remain in the church, at a social distance from others, while waiting.


The parish of Finchley Church End celebrated its Centenary in 2019.  You can read about the celebrations in an article which appeared in the December 2019 issue of the Westminster Record.

A souvenir book was produced to mark the Parish Centenary.  Copies are available on request.  There is no charge but a donation towards costs would be appreciated.
