"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.

    In today’s Gospel we return to the Upper Room on the night of the Last Supper. Judas has just left and Jesus knows these are his final moments with the disciples before he will be taken away from them. So he gives them one final instruction, which he calls the “new commandment” – “love one another as I have loved you… By this love which you have for one another, everyone will know that you are my disciples.” If they are not sure what this means, Jesus will show them in the following 24 hours the depths of his love by giving his own life freely for the salvation of all. He loves us to his final breath. He gives everything of himself for us.

    This is the “commandment” which Jesus gives to us all – to live generous lives of service and sacrifice which transform the world around us. As a parish community we are called to be a place, a people where this world-changing love is experienced. This flows from our own living relationship with God, celebrated in our coming together at Mass to be renewed in God’s love as well as in other forms of shared prayer and devotion. Then this divine love in us should shape all our everyday relationships, helping us to love and forgive even when, in human terms, we most struggle to do this. This divine love should make us an open-doored community with a caring heart for the community in which we live, especially for those most in need. Finally, this love should make us sensitive and responsive to the wider needs of our human family and to recognise that, compared to so many people in the world today, we live relatively comfortable and secure lives and so we have a shared responsibility to help those in our global family who are in need. We do this through learning more about the reality of others’ lives and then supporting them spiritually and materially, such as in our sponsorship scheme through Mary’s Meals of the Mongola Primary school in Malawi. This is to be the shape of our lives – Christ’s love beating in our hearts.

    With Easter wishes & prayers from Fr Richard, Fr Ephrem & the parish team
