You Were Only Supposed to Blow the Doors Off

Steady now. While restrictions may have eased, we still need to be sensitive towards those who are susceptible to disease and who, for good reason, have not yet been vaccinated. So please follow the guidelines for our ongoing conduct in the church in The Latest Newsletter. You will also find information there about what is happening in our parish and the Diocese over the summer. There is even more information on our Facebook page where you can also follow a live-streamed Sunday Mass and find links to other useful sites.

Our fuller parish website is www.olsjw.org.uk where there is more information about the parish, the church, and the parish clergy and staff, as well as a history of the parish, pictures of the church, and details of the ministries, groups, and other ways to be involved in the life of our community. Over the summer I will be transferring much of that information to this website so please bear with me.

Our address may sound obscure – 54 Lodge Road, NW8 8LA (at the top of Lisson Grove, on the corner of Lodge Road, and near the junction with St John’s Wood Road) – but the reality is we are just behind the flats directly opposite the Grace Gate of Lord’s Cricket Ground. Whatever brings you to the area you can be sure of a warm welcome. The church is open daily from 7:00am until 7:00pm and while we’re all glad to have a bit more freedom in church, do take it easy and remember Michael Caine quoted (almost fully) above.

Be assured of my best wishes and my prayers that God may bless you and your loved ones and grant you all a wonderful summer.

Fr Kevin
