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, to proclaim the Gospel and 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 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 Good News of the Kingdom of God through what we say and do and by being proactive in seeking out those whose lives are poor or impoverished, physically, emotionally and spiritually. This is our vocation as disciples of Jesus Christ.
Masses at Holy Cross - Until further notice there will be a Vigil Mass for Sunday at 4pm, 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 because of the Covid 19 pandemic. Sanitising measures, social distancing of 2 metres and an empty 'every other' bench will be in place at every Mass.
Masses on Sunday will be at 9.45am and 11.30am. There will be no creche or children's liturgy.
Masses are also celebrated at 9.30am each weekday (except Wednesday and Saturday) The Church will be closed shortly after all Masses to facilitate cleansing and sanitisation in accordance with the Covid 19 guidelines issued by the Government and the Diocese of Westminster.
Please note that because of the need for 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.
IMPORTANT - Following the announcement from Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Friday 31st July 2020, the wearing of face coverings in Church will be mandatory from Saturday the 8th August until further notice. Please make sure you bring a face covering to Mass. You can remove it to receive Holy Communion, and then leave the Church immediately. Thank you for your cooperation.
