Weekly News

This Sunday is the 23rd in Ordinary Time. In the Gospel reading Jesus heals a deaf man. This is one of the few occasions that the Gospel writers use the Aramaic language for Jesus’ words. Ephphatha, meaning Be Opened. Our journey towards God in this life constantly asks us to be more open to him, and it isn’t always easy.  Click here for the Scripture Readings.

Late Summer Cocktails and Lunch This Sunday. Please join us for a late summer lunch at S. Pauls Church Garden, Camden Square, from Midday. All are welcome. Entrance: Free.

Saturday 11th September 2pm
The annual charity walk for the Ashanti Development who help the lives of the poorest in Ghana. Each year they begin their walk from our church with a blessing. If you are free come and greet them. Please let Fr James know if you are able to help with refreshments for the pilgrims from 1.30pm.

Prayers of the Faithful at Sunday Mass
If you are willing to be part of the rota to lead the prayers of intercession on  Sunday mornings, please speak to Nicolas. No previous experience required!

Coffee and Brass 
Please join Nicolas on Saturday mornings from the 4th September for a spot of brass cleaning accompanied by coffee and conversation. Simply drop in between 10.30-11.30am to help keep our church looking beautiful.

Old S.Pancras Wine Cellar
Wine is served at many of our social events during the year and on Tuesdays after mass. Our cellar now needs restocking. Please bring any of your unwanted bottles or consider donating a bottle or two regularly. Hospitality is a vital part of our mission and outreach, but it isn’t without cost.

Mass time CHANGE 
From the 7th September the Tuesday evening mass will be at the slightly later time of 6.30pm. This is to allow those returning to places of work time make the mass.
