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

24th March 2019 – 3rd Sunday of Lent

Gospel: Luke 13:1-9

The Lord of the vineyard offers us ample chance to bear fruit

Some people came and told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. He asked them, “Do you think that because these Galileans suffered in this way they were worse sinners than all other Galileans? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all perish as they did. Or those eighteen who were killed when the tower of Siloam fell on them-do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others living in Jerusalem? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all perish just as they did.” Then he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it and found none. So he said to the gardener, ‘See here! For three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree, and still I find none. Cut it down! Why should it be wasting the soil?’ He replied, ‘Sir, let it alone for one more year, until I dig around it and put manure on it. If it bears fruit next ear, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down.’”
