A warm welcome to the website of the
Roman Catholic Church of St. Thomas of Canterbury, Fulham
in the Archdiocese of Westminster.
For this Sunday 26th April, 2015
Letter from Fr. Dennis to the Community:
My Dear Friends,
This coming week brings to an end, for this year at least, the Catechetical programmes in our parish. Our First Holy Communion children will meet the Lord for the first time in the Blessed Sacrament at special Masses on Saturday 2nd – 16th and 23rd May. Our young adults will go up to the Cathedral on the 9th May to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, with candidates from seven other parishes from the Diocese, at the hands of Bishop John Sherrington.
Please do take a moment to remember them all before Almighty God and pray for them during these important days and may our witness, help them to be faithful, so that they may draw ever closer to our Redeemer. May they walk with Jesus throughout their lives.
I would also like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude and thanks to our parish Catechists. We are truly blessed here at St Thomas in that we have a vibrant and highly committed group of people who, freely and generously, give of their time and love to pass on their faith to a new generation. It is not always an easy task and can often be quite challenging, but it is hugely rewarding, for after all we are all called to be witnesses and to bring Christ to others – THANK YOU!
Finally, at the end of what has not been an easy week, may I say how touched and moved I have been to see the outpouring of love and affection for dear Peter Izzard as we said our goodbyes to him – may he rest in peace. Let us give thanks to God for this manifestation of the Holy Spirit in our community and always proclaim that we are an Easter people and that Alleluia is our song.
Fr. Dennis Touw
