Parish Registration - REGISTER NOW!

Our parish is growing and changing and we need to capture these changes. With this
mission in mind, the Communications Committee of the Parish Pastoral Council have
created a parish registration form that it is asking ALL parishioners to fill in (digitally or
on paper, available here in Word or PDF format).

Advent Prayers

Time is a fundamental constituent of our lives which God gifted to us. The stewardship of Time asks us to make the most of our Time and return it to God with increase. During Advent we will continue to ask parishioners to pledge some Time for prayers. There is a temporary altar in the Lower Hall for everyone to come and pray or to leave a testimony of their prayer intentions. You can make that commitment and leave a testimony writing a prayer 'intention card' which are available in a basket the Narthex and leave them in the Lower hall in a basket next to the altar.

Stewardship Advent reflections

Over the weeks of Advent the Archdiocese of Southwark's Stewardship Team, in collaboration with the diocesan Spirituality Commission, will send daily short reflections featuring thoughts, Scripture and prayer. The Time, Talent, Treasure Stewardship initiative of St William of York invites you to take advantage of these material to enhance your advent. If you would like to receive them please register with your email here:
