The launch of the Perpetual Adoration has been a wonderful success with more than 100 Parishioners spending an hour in front of the Blessed Sacrament. Many Adorers have commented on the peace and tranquillity of the Adoration Chapel and have been grateful for this oasis in the middle of busy London. To keep this beautiful initiative going, we do need 12 more Parishioners to commit an hour each week at one of the following times: Tuesday 9-10am, 1-2 pm, 4-5pm, 5-6pm. Wednesday 4-5pm. Thursday 1-2pm, 3-4pm. Friday 6-7am, 4-5pm, 5-6 pm. Saturday 6-7am, 3-4pm. Through commitment will come many blessing for you personally and for our Parish Community. Can you help? If so, please email the Lead coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org or talk to Fr Jeff anytime.
Parish of Our Lady
The building of the Church of Our Lady was funded by two sisters Lousie and Jessie Gallini, from a legacy left them by their father, Sir John Gallini who had come to England as a refugee from Italy. They chose St Johns Wood, and in 1832 a temporary chapel built to serve the mission was established on land leased from the Eyre Estate. The present church was opened in 1836.
Father Jeffrey is available to answer all enquiries into Baptism, Marriage, Funerals, Mass intentions, house blessings, and other areas where the need may arise for a priest. Please contact one of our priests, in person, for any needs surrounding the sacraments. You can also reach one of our priests by way of appointment by phoning the parish office at 020 7286 3214.
Music at Our Lady
Our resident, amateur choir was established 1971. It specialises in the polyphony and plainchant of the Roman Catholic church which you can hear on Sundays at the 10:30 Solemn Sung Mass. Rehearsals are on Fridays 19:30 - 21:00 and Sundays 9:20 - 10:30.
In addition to its extensive repertoire of early music, the choir occasionally ventures into the Baroque and beyond. There are 2 orchestral masses a year with accompanied music from talented organists.
With new members joining all along and some of the founder members still singing there is a broad range of ages. Please read on and let Martin know if you would like to join.
