A warm welcome to the website
of the English Martyrs Catholic Church
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 two priests 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.

The Month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart. The Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the Friday following the second Sunday after Pentecost. In addition to the liturgical celebration, many devotional exercises are connected with the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Of all devotions, devotion to the Sacred Heart was, and remains, one of the most widespread and popular in the Church.
We are encouraged as family to pray Litany of the of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
