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.

Gospel: Mark (4:26-34)

Jesus ponders the mysterious miracle of growth and fruitfulness

Jesus said to the crowd, “The kingdom of God is as if someone would scatter seed on the ground, and would sleep and rise night and day, and the seed would sprout and grow, he does not know how. The earth produces of itself, first the stalk, then the head, then the full grain in the head. But when the grain is ripe, at once he goes in with his sickle, because the harvest has come.” He also said, “With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable will we use for it? It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth; yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes the greatest of all shrubs, and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade.” With many such parables he spoke the word to them, as they were able to hear it; he did not speak to them except in parables, but he explained everything in private to his disciples.
