Welcome to the webpages of the Catholic Parish of St Gabriel, South Harrow and St Bernard, Northolt.
Our Churches are open
for the Public Celebration of Mass
In a recent homily Fr James speaks of the Tabernacle as the still centre of our parish life. Come to church! Be with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament!
We continue to keep our churches safe by following the safety guidelines.

The Solemnity of ALL SAINTS
is on Sunday 1st November
(Masses are at normal Sunday times…)
COMMEMORATION OF THE FAITHFUL DEPARTED (ALL SOULS DAY)
Requiem Masses will be celebrated at
10.00am (St Gabriel’s)
7.30pm (St Bernard’s)
As usual, throughout the month of November Masses will be offered in the parish for the work of God’s grace in the souls in purgatory. These will be both public and privately said Masses. We will leave envelopes at the exit of church for you to take home, in which to include details of the names of those for whom we will be offering Mass, together with whatever stipend you offer for these Masses. You can return the envelopes to the basket at the exit, or through the letterbox of the Presbytery. The collected names will symbolically rest close to the altar as usual, but for covid security that box must not be touched.
Meeting with the Clergy
On Saturday mornings, Fr James and Fr Tom will be available to meet with people in a socially distanced and safe way. Please telephone to make an appointment.
The Parish Office will be open for any practical purposes on Thursday mornings between 10.00am – 11.00am
More Volunteers Needed
We have been very blessed with a number of generous volunteers who have enabled our churches to be able to open for Mass. As we enter this new period, circumstances are changing – people are returning to university or back to work after being on furlough. This means that more than ever, we need more people to volunteer to steward Mass at different points in the week. The more volunteers that we have, means the easier the task will be as it is shared.
