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 28th June, 2015
Letter from Fr. Dennis to the Community:
My Dear Friends
This weekend we are celebrating one of the great feast days of the Church’s year – Ss Peter and Paul. ‘Petertide’ is by tradition the time of year when men are ordained to the Priesthood and we are truly blessed to be welcoming five new priests into our own diocese of Westminster. Please pray for Bill Bowder, Cyril Chiaha, Daniel Humphreys, David Lucuy and David Burke as they enter into the fullness of the Priesthood and take up their new ministry.
The annual “Peter’s Pence” collection, which funds the charitable works of our Holy Father will also be taken up at all Masses this weekend. This fund allows Pope Francis to support victims of disaster, war, oppression as well as those needing emergency assistance, thank you for your generosity.
On Tuesday 7th July the Prayer Group are organising a special “Day of Prayer”. Mass will be celebrated at 9.30 am after which the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed in church until 9 pm. The Holy Rosary will be said and then the rest of the day will be an opportunity for all of us to come and pray. The main focus of this day is for us to call into the Lord’s presence all those who suffer persecution for their Christian faith. Sadly the list of countries where Christians are persecuted grows ever larger and the need for prayer is ever greater. This is a wonderful initiative and I do hope that many of us will come and pray. It is, of course, of the greatest importance that the ‘watch’ before the Blessed Sacrament is maintained throughout the day, and therefore there is a list on the newspaper table for you to sign if you can guarantee some of your time on that day. May it be a day truly blessed!
