St-Edmunds-front-2

Welcome to the webpages of the

Catholic Church of St Edmund of Canterbury, Whitton.

The parish of  St Edmund of Canterbury exists:

  1. To foster and nurture Gods love and our relationship with Him, individually and as a parish community
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
Our postal address is The Presbytery, St Edmund’s Lane, 213 Nelson Road, Whitton, Middx TW2 7BB.

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 whitton@rcdow.org.uk or you can use the contact page on this website.

Who is a Practising Catholic?

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.
