This Sunday is the 24th in Ordinary Time. In the Gospel reading Jesus teaches that ‘If anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let him renounce himself and take up his cross and follow me’ Hard words to hear but they lead us to life with him in its fullness.  Click here for the Scripture Readings.

Holy Cross Day

Please speak to Fr James if you would like to donate a sacred vestment in memory of a loved one.

Our Lady of Copacabana 
On Saturday the 18th September at 2pm the Bolivian community in London will be gathering in Old S.Pancras for their annual celebration of the Virgin of Copacabana. There will be a Solemn mass in the presence of their image of the Virgin and singing of a traditional Bolivian hymn to Mary. All are welcome.

Old S.Pancras Wine Cellar
