Fr Paschal to lead this Sunday’s service on BBC local radio
Our newest priest, Fr Paschal Uche, will be leading the BBC local radio religious service at 8am this Sunday, 30 August. The service will be heard across all 39 BBC local radio stations, with an estimated audience of half a million listeners. Fr Paschal only became a priest at the beginning of August – but he has some media experience to call on. He famously greeted Pope Benedict XVI on behalf of young Catholics during the Papal Visit to the UK and had to field a number of media interviews afterwards. He has been involved in large youth events such as Flame and has also recorded videos on his vocational journey and his role while a deacon. Most recently he impressed in a video – Being Black and Catholic – produced by the Diocese of Westminster

Church Reopening – Volunteers needed
The Parish Team has been working together to make the necessary arrangements to open our church initially for private prayer and later for mass.
It will not be possible to open our church without our community working together to support us in various roles as we need to follow guidelines issued by the government and the diocese. At this stage we would like volunteers to support us in two ways, ushering and cleaning. If you are able to volunteer for either role, please give us a call on 020 8478 1895 or e-mail us at email@example.com …. kindly leave a message with your phone number and name and we will get back to you.
Volunteers will be given training and personal protective equipment to ensure their safety.
Please note that volunteers must not be over the age of 60, must not have any underlying health conditions and not live with any elderly/vulnerable people.
We will not be able to open for private prayer or mass without volunteers to support us so please do your very best to come forward and offer your support at this difficult time.
You can support us in our quest to seek God through other; our interaction with other faith groups in our neighbourhood; our care for the elderly programme and living wage campaigns through our gift aid program.
