St Mary Magdalen Church Mortlake
From The Archbishop of Southwark, Most Rev John Wilson
... As Covid-19 restrictions have begun to be relaxed, we are very grateful that permission has now been given for places of worship to reopen
for prayer and services from 4th July. This can only happen, however,
if all the necessary hygiene and social distancing measures have been put
in place. ... (see the full text under 'News and Events')
A message from Fr Adrian McKenna:
Sadly, for public safety, our parish church must remain closed
until we have enough Stewards to open around our repair schedule
for the ceiling. We have commissioned a thorough structural survey of the entire central nave and will be making repairs throughout the summer. Although we cannot open to the public yet, Mass continues to be said daily and is live-streamed on Sunday to registered Parishioners. Please remember:
+ Hygiene: wear gloves in public places, wash hands frequently
and use 70%+ alcohol sanitiser
+ Home: is now the heart of prayer as we must stay away from going to Mass
with the continued suspension of our Sunday Mass obligation
+ 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.

Live-streamed Mass & Spiritual Communion
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.
