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 bond 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 support and join the social events and fundraising committee.

Parishioner' Isabel Ryan's father John Ryan was the weekly cartoonist for the Catholic Herald newspaper from 1964 - 2007.

With showcases, slide show and a 'Timeline', this exhibition is free of charge and open until 13 April.

Visitor's comments: 
"Thanks for a fresh and stimulating take on Vatican II Church in England – humour is a great teacher.
"

"A fantastically engaging insight into Catholicism & Britain's social & cultural history." 

"Beautifully put-together memories, with very interesting 'dialogues' and information clear and entertaining."

'A very provocative 'Timeline'."

Reviews: "Do visit, you will not be disappointed." - Ronald Crane in The Portal Magazine

"... the exhibition reveals [Ryan's] Herald cartoons were about much more than simply seeing the funny side. They were a service to the Church as they gave a platform to what those in the pews were really thinking." Peter Stanford in The Tablet
