  1. On Tuesday 2/2/2016, Fr. Joseph will lead a group to enter the”Holy Door” at Westminster Cathedral during the Year of  Mercy. Participants are asked to meet at 2:30pm outside the front door of the Cathedral and the event will finish around 4/4:30pm. Please come and join . All are welcome.

  2. Chinese New Year Day is 8/2/2016 and Sunday 7/2/2016 is New Year’s Eve. Our Community will celebrate Chinese New Year on 7th February praying the ancestral rites during Mass with celebration in the Hall afterwards. Please come and join us and if possible also bring food to share. All are welcome.

  3. Ash Wednesday is the beginning of the Lenten Season. According to our Church’s tradition, we fast on that day. However, in China if Ash Wednesday falls during the Chinese New Year period, fasting is exempted. For Catholics in London, we are encouraged to fast if we wish as there is not such a big celebration of Chinese New Year as in China. Please attend Ash Wednesday Liturgy at your local Parish Church on that day, otherwise ashes will be given on the following Sunday Mass.

  4. Fr. Joseph is returning to China for his visa application and Fr Justine will celebrate Sunday Mass for us. Homily will still be read in Chinese. Please continue to come to Sunday Mass.
