Our Social Events: Our parish is the center where our spiritual and sacramental needs are fulfilled through the pastoral care we receive, mainly from the parish clergy supported by every parishioner. Our parish is a vibrant, close-knit parish community. It is also located in one of the most multicultural areas of London; we belong to a universal Church and a truly diverse neighbourhood.

Our social events help to bring and bind our diverse parish community together and further strengthen that community bondSocial Committee and unity. We all constantly strive to promote a sense of family and community in our parish. This begins with all our liturgical celebrations and extends to our social activities, of which we host a number every year.

Our Parish has an active social events and fundraising committee whose ministry supports, promotes and works together to foster community cohesion, bringing us together through this ministry. The Committee helps to organize parish social activities. These activities provide occasions for socialising and celebrating together. They also provide opportunities for sharing our faith and supporting one another on our journey through life together.

We encourage members of the parish to get involved, support and join the social events and fundraising committee.
