Returning Catholics

We are here as a point of reconnection for Catholics who have, for whatever reason, been away from the Church. In London, this includes a range of events at our Farm Street Parish.  At Landings London you will be warmly welcomed at events such as our relaxed, informal meetings based around storytelling, with discussions in small groups.

Farm Street Church ethnic chaplaincy

Farm Street Church is a diverse Jesuit parish in the heart of London. Both a Japanese Catholic community and a Filipino community are active within the parish.

On the third Sunday of the month, Mass is said at 1.30 pm for the Japanese Catholic community in the St Ignatius Chapel in the church.

On the first Wednesday of each month, the Farm Street Filipino Community has Novena Prayers or the Novena Mass to Our Lady of Perpetual Help at 6:30 pm in the Ignatius Chapel in the church.

LGBT+ Catholics Westminster

Many LGBT+ Catholics have had a difficult experience of reconciling their sexuality and their faith, including, too often, rejection by family or their local community.  In London, LGBT+ Catholics Westminster is an important part of the Farm Street community.  This includes a particular focus on the 5:30 pm Mass on the second and fourth Sundays of the month. The group provides readers, extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion, and music accompaniment, as well as planning and organising faith-development activities for LGBT+ Catholics.

St Beuno’s outreach

St Beuno’s Outreach is based in St Beuno’s Jesuit Spirituality Centre in the hills of North Wales, in the Diocese of Wrexham. The Outreach began in 1989, with the idea of helping people develop and maintain a personal relationship with God through Christ by praying the Word of God in the Sunday liturgy. From a prayerful awareness of the Spirit working in and through us will come to a sense of mission, a desire to join Christ in His mission.

To this end, the St Beuno’s Outreach team has been producing a weekly prayer leaflet called PREGO, which offers reflections on the Sunday readings, for group and individual use. An additional page called PREGO PLUS provides simple background material on the two Scripture texts. It is usually better to pray the texts first and then refer to PREGO PLUS if necessary. These leaflets are of great use to many people in different pastoral situations all over the world.
