Welcome to the webpages of the
Catholic Church of St Edmund of Canterbury, Whitton.
The parish of St Edmund of Canterbury exists:
- To foster and nurture Gods love and our relationship with Him, individually and as a parish community
- To live as the family of God, in one united heart, showing our love through the reconciliation of our differences. Celebrating the diversity of our gifts and encouraging one another to respond to Gods will, therefore building His kingdom on earth.
- By the love that we show for one another we act as witnesses to Christ, extending God’s love to those around us so that others may come to know and experience the love of God through the risen Lord Jesus.
You will find us if you turn right at Whitton BR Station, left at the Admiral Nelson Pub. The Presbytery is behind the church.
Whoever you are and from wherever you are, you will always find a warm welcome in our church. We invite you to come and share mass with us on Sundays and weekday mornings. Mass times are on the box on the right.
You can contact us on 020 8894 9923. Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org or you can use the contact page on this website.
We’re keen to hear from you, so please feel free to contact us!

Who is a Practising Catholic?
A person is considered a ‘Practising Catholic’ if they have received Catholic baptism (or have been canonically received into full communion with the Catholic Church) and strive to observe the Church’s precept of attending Mass on Sundays and holidays of obligation according to the circumstances of their life.
CHURCH ORGANIST REQUIRED
St. Edmund’s are offering the post of ORGANIST -initially for the first two Sundays every month- to play the required music for our 11.15 a.m. Sunday mass with choir. We would also require playing at some major festivals.
There is an SATB choir and the music at the mass consists of choral as well as congregational music and motets. Attendance is also needed at the Friday evening choir practice (8-9.30 p.m.)
Payment by negotiation according to qualifications and experience. Knowledge of the Roman Catholic rite is desirable but not essential.
In the long term we are looking for the right candidate to take overall responsibility for the choir and music at the principal mass.
Please reply to BOB KING, Choirmaster, c/o the church.
