"Come to me all you who are burdened and I will give you rest."

Our parish is part of the Diocese of Westminster and is situated in the heart of London.

It is home to a vibrant, exciting and culturally diverse community, sharing our lives and growing in faith together. Our website aims to provide a taste of our spirit and parish life and touches on all the many different groups we are very fortunate to have, all of which are centred firmly in The Good News of Christ.

Our Lady of Fatima isn't just a Church, it's also a home and a village and everybody who enters is an important element in making it fully functional, bringing the spirit of Christ to the community.

We strive to provide a loving welcome to all who pass through our doors as well as care, protection and refuge for people of all races and all ages, young and old, but nothing can substitute for coming and sharing in our worship with us.

    The BREAD of LIFE (Part 4)

    Fr Damian Broda, our visiting priest from Poland, shares his final reflection:

    At the beginning of this reflection there will be a little bit about food... Each of us needs to eat every day to be able to function normally and have the strength to work. However, food is not just about satisfying our hunger. It also pleases our palate and a meal eaten together is a great opportunity to build friendships. In today's psalm, we say: ‘Taste and see that the Lord is good’. We can taste God, experience his taste. This may sound a bit strange, but, yes, God wants us to delight in him, not least in our hearts through Holy Communion.

    Later this week I return to Poland and I am very grateful to God that he has given me the opportunity to 'taste' life in this parish during my three-week visit. If I compare this time with food, I can honestly say that it has tasted delicious and that it has been very diverse in ingredients! The first week was the summer camp time for children - a time of joy, fun, but above all an experience of faith and common prayer and friendship. Later, I had the opportunity to experience the work of the Missionary of Charity sisters and participate in a retreat for teenage girls. For two weeks I had the joy to live and work with volunteers from Spain. All my days were filled with the deep kindness and care of the parishioners, everywhere, in the presbytery, in the sacristy, on the parish trips to the seaside or just on the street, which I will not forget and I will be thankful for in my prayers. I am especially grateful to Fr Richard and Fr Ephrem for sharing with me their priestly brotherhood. I thank them for the community that we could create at the altar, in common prayer, and in everyday conversations.

    My faith has been really strengthened by sharing the life of this parish. It is beautiful that we come from different countries, sometimes speak different languages, but together we share the one faith in the one God who is Love. Taste and see that the Lord is good!
         
    With summer blessings & prayers - Fr Richard, Fr Ephrem, Fr Damian, Julia & all the parish team.
