PRAYER FOR THE 125th ANNIVERSARY

O Lord, we thank you and we praise you. You are the God of yesterday, today and forever. We give you thanks for the 125th anniversary of the English Martyrs Church in Streatham. We thank you for the foundation members of our parish and all those who through the years have contributed to the building and development of our parish, both materially and spiritually. To the departed, we beg you to grant eternal life and to those of us still living, give us grace to continue to build your kingdom here and now through our participation and ministry in your Church.

Bless our children and all our young people. May they discover you more deeply as they participate in the life of the Church. Give strength and fulfilment to our old and housebound, may they savour the memories of the blessed time spent in the gathering of God people in this Church. And after our earthly sojourn, bring us home to heaven where with the angels, the English martyrs, all the saints, and the Blessed Virgin Mary, we shall praise you for all eternity. Amen.

A warm welcome to the website of the English Martyrs Catholic Church in Streatham. Our Parish is part of the Archdiocese of Southwark and is located in the South of London. By virtue of our location, we are host to people from over forty nationalities. The church has been on its present site since 1893 and has served the community in various ways apart from her spiritual mission which is the primary aim of her presence in the community. The church building which is designed in 13th century gothic style is open to all who wish to worship with us on a daily basis and especially on Sundays when the community gathers for the celebration of the Holy mass.

At the moment the parish has one priest who ministers to the needs of the parishioners.

The website is aimed to provide details of our mass times, information about the sacraments, schools and other organisations attached to the parish, office hours and other relevant information.

Fr Gregory Mario Verissimo

Gospel: Luke 6:17, 20-26

Luke has just four Beatitudes, and four corresponding ‘woes’.

Jesus came down with them and stood on a level place, with a great crowd of his disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea, Jerusalem, and the coast of Tyre and Sidon.

Then he looked up at his disciples and said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. “Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you will be filled. “Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh. “Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude you, revile you, and defame you on account of the Son of Man. Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, for surely your reward is great in heaven; for that is what their ancestors did to the prophets. “But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation. “Woe to you who are full now, for you will be hungry. “Woe to you who are laughing now, for you will mourn and weep. “Woe to you when all speak well of you, for that is what their ancestors did to the false prophets.
