St Mary Magdalen Church Mortlake
From The Archbishop of Southwark, Most Rev John Wilson
With immediate effect, without any exceptions,
all our churches and chapels across the Archdiocese
must remain closed to the public until further notice.
This is to supress the spread of the COVID-19 virus among gatherings of people, and, in particular, to protect the most vulnerable
A message from Fr Adrian McKenna: whilst I will be saying Mass daily
for us all and praying for you throughout the day, please remember:
+ Hygiene: wear gloves in public places, wash hands and use 70% alcohol sanitiser
+ Home: is now the heart of prayer as we must stay away from going to Mass
+ 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 no longer has an Office Manager. We are waiting
to appoint a Parish Administrator, but this will take some time, so please
be aware that voicemails and emails will be answered as soon as possible. Please note: the Office is closed on Tuesdays.
Details of our Palm Sunday, Holy Week and Easter services will be posted here when we have news of what is possible.
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.
