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.

May – month of Mary
The month of May is the “month which the piety of the faithful has especially dedicated to Our Blessed Lady,” and it is the occasion for a “moving tribute of faith and love which Catholics in every part of the world [pay] to the Queen of Heaven. During this month Christians, both in church and in the privacy of the home, offer up to Mary from their hearts an especially fervent and loving homage of prayer and veneration. In this month, too, the benefits of God’s mercy come down to us from her throne in greater abundance .
We are encouraged as family to recite the Rosary or Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Litany of Loreto)
