St Mary Magdalen Church Mortlake
A message from Fr Adrian McKenna:
From 5th November we start a 4-week Lockdown period and the church remains closed for repairs during the week. On Sundays, we cannot open for services with a congregation, but we can only open for a ‘Holy Hour’
of private prayer from 9.45-10.45am, with registration at the door by scanning the NHS Venue Code. If you don’t have a smart phone please still turn up, as you may give your name and phone number at the door instead. We will continue to reserve seats for our Parish seniors during this Lockdown period.
Please remember to stay at least 1 meter away from other individuals
not in your household or bubble group and that wearing a mask
or face covering is mandatory for everyone unless exempt.
Mass continues to be said daily and is live-streamed on Sunday
to registered Parishioners. To subscribe to our newsletter with the link
for Mass please follow the link at the end of the page.
+ Hygiene: wear masks in public places, wash hands frequently
and use 70%+ alcohol sanitiser
+ Home: continues to be a place of prayer as it's not possible to be in church for Mass.
NB our Sunday Mass obligation continues to be suspended
+ Help: think positively of ways you can help our Parish Family to care for one another
and for your neighbours such as help with shopping and checking all is ok.
The Parish Office is open from 10am to 1pm on Monday
and from 10am to 1pm Wednesday to Friday.
Please note, the Parish Administrator works only part-time, and is unable to access the Parish Office under lockdown conditions, so please be aware
that voicemails and emails will be answered as soon as possible.
Please note: the Office is closed on Tuesdays.
The Cemetery is open daily from 9am to 3pm.

(the link is at the bottom of this page)
Several Parishes within the Archdiocese live-stream Mass each weekend. We have compiled a list of those that currently do so, along with links to each stream. Please check the times of services since these may change from the normal advertised routine in the present circumstances.
During this time we are encouraged by Pope Francis to make a spiritual communion. An excellent prayer sheet has been produced by the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales, including a prayer for spiritual communion. Click here to view / download.
