The Diocese of Westminster announced in July 2021 the aim of becoming carbon neutral by 2030 in its parishes and curial buildings.
We are inviting you to be a part of this very exciting project. You do not need any particular skills or expertise- just willing to give a few hours a month to meet and take this project forward. Knowing what you can do to make a difference and where to start can be tricky, especially when we’re bombarded with so much jargon and abstract information in the news; it can sometimes feel like everything has a bad impact! What can we do to live more ‘sustainably’ and what does that really mean? How can we do more for the planet and reduce the environmental impact we have?
Dear brother in Christ,
On Palm Sunday 2021, the Holy Father used very strong words to speak of the Passion of the Lord: “This amazes us: to see the Almighty reduced to nothing … to see the God of the universe stripped of everything … Why, Lord, did you wish to endure all this? Jesus did it for us, to plumb the depths of our human experience, our entire existence, all our evil. To draw near to us and not abandon us in our suffering and our death. …. By experiencing in the flesh our deepest struggles and conflicts, he redeemed and transformed them” (Pope Francis, Homily, 28 March 2021).

This Christmas we invite you to come home and experience the welcome of your Catholic community. Come and receive the warm family welcome of returning home for Christmas where there is already a place waiting for you.
Many of us fall away from the Church, but whatever your reasons or situation, why not take a fresh look? You are invited to take this first step, at your own pace and in your own time.
This might be simply to find a Catholic church and go inside. Perhaps you might sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. You might want to light a candle and say a prayer for a loved one. Is there a friend or family member that might come with you to Mass?
Keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook as we prepare for the celebration of Christmas throughout Advent.
Those parishioners who for medical reasons can only take Gluten Free as per their diet.
We here at St Edmund’s have Gluten Free Hosts. Should you require, see Fr. Christopher before Mass, so he could consecrate the hots for you.
Thanks, Fr Christopher

The parish needs help with the children’s liturgy at both the 9am and 11am masses.
The 9am mass is currently at risk of being cancelled if we don’t get any volunteers.
These classes are important to help our children grow in our faith. Please let us know if you could help once or twice a month by dropping an email to Parish Office.
