Congratulations to Fr Brian McMahon  who was ordained priest on Saturday 24 June  and said his first Mass at Our Lady of Perpetual Help on Sunday, packed church, great music, great homily, church looked great, servers  and everybody involved in helping it run smoothly were great and it was followed by a great party. As Fr Brian said at the end of a wonderful mass, Rome has two popes, but Our lady’s has three PPs because Fr Roger our former PP was a concelebrant as was Fr Colin, the PP before him and Fr Bill the present PP. Many people took photos of the occasion and some said they would send them so we could upload them here. As soon as they arrive I will post them.

Tuesday 27 June is the Feast Day of our Lady of Perpetual Help. Do come to the 7pm Mass and informal get together afterwards.

Above: neighbours and friends met outside the church on 18 June, a beautiful day for the Great Get-Together lunch as we recognised, as the late Jo Cox MP said, we have much more that unites us than divides us. Lets do it again next year, or sooner!

The church that carries her name is in Stephendale Road in Fulham, SW6. We have had many occasions to thank her for her intercessions to her Son in whose name we live and move and have our being. Here there is a welcome for everyone of goodwill, a place of prayer and beauty.
