Holy Cross Parsons Green
Our parish was founded in 1842 and since then the Roman Catholic community has gathered for the celebration of Mass and the other sacraments, and to celebrate significant moments in our lives.
People of all ages and nationalities, and their families, have found a spiritual home here at Holy Cross. Together, we not only seek to deepen our knowledge and love of God but also reach out in care, compassion and friendship to one another within the parish, in the local community and further afield. In doing so, we take to heart the call of Pope Francis to be ‘missionary disciples’ by preaching the Gospel through what we say and do and by being proactive in seeking out those whose lives are poor or impoverished.
Resumption of the public celebration of Mass - July 4th 2020
From Saturday 4th July there will be a Vigil Mass for Sunday at 4pm until further notice, as well as the 6.30pm Vigil Mass. The 4pm Saturday Mass is principally directed towards encouraging the attendance of our senior or vulnerable parishioners who have been shielding/self-isolating during the lockdown period. Sanitising measures, social distancing of 2 metres and an empty 'every other' bench will be in place.
Masses from Sunday 5th July will be at 8.15am, 9.45am and 11.30am till advised otherwise. There will be no creche or children's liturgy on Sundays in July and August. Masses are also celebrated at 9.30am each weekday (except Wednesday and Saturday) The Church will be closed shortly after Mass to facilitate daily cleansing and sanitisation.
Please note that because of social distancing, the Church can only accommodate 60 persons at any one Mass. If the Church is over capacity, you will be kindly asked to return and participate at another Mass. In the current circumstances, we thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
Holy Communion will be distributed at all Masses
