Updated: Nov 29, 2018

Christmas 2018 service times – please take a card home detailing all the service times over Christmas.


SINGERS NEEDED

1/ Are you in Hammersmith for Christmas?

Join our “Scratch Choir” for Christmas Eve 9 pm Mass.

First rehearsal takes place this Saturday 1 December from 10 am – 11.30 am in the St John Stone Hall. Next rehearsals are Thursday 13 December (7.30 pm-9 pm) and Sunday 23 December (4 pm).

2/ Carol Service & Christmas Celebration (16 December)

Singers of all ages welcome (and whole families too!). Come along and join the choir – first practice for singers is TODAY at 11.45 am in the St John Stone Hall. Children must be accompanied by an adult. There’s something for everyone, with music from the sacred to the secular and popular ones to sing, new ones to learn!


Sunday 8 December - Bring a gift to help someone else

Following your kind generosity last year, our Advent Project will support the local Barons Court Project which helps vulnerable adults to cope better with their mental illness, increase in confidence and live independently. They aim to progress their journey into work and a return to life off the streets.

If you would like to contribute please bring along a wrapped non-perishable gift (please label what it is on the front) to Mass on the weekend of 7/8 December. The Barons Court Project are particular in need of Tins of Biscuits, mens socks, gloves,  hats, nice toiletries (male and female) and boxes of chocolates. There will be collection boxes in the Church and we will invite children at the 10.30 am mass to bring them forward. Many thanks to Ana Joao  for arranging this.


Eucharistic Ministers – sign-up sheets for those able to help over the Christmas liturgies will be available next weekend. For readers, servers and welcomers – details to follow via the group co-ordinators.

Advent Retreat Online

This Advent a variety of Augustinians, including overseas friars, will offer daily refections based on the daily scripture readings and the Augustinian value of Interiority - perhaps better understood as a type of Christian mindfulness. Please register now at - https://hozana.org/s/HMzaux 

As Advent begins you will begin to receive the reflections.
