Welcome to the Parish of Our Lady of Victories, Kensington--London. We are part of the Catholic Diocese of Westminster. We are a vibrant, multi-cultural, and diverse community. We find our unity in the faith we have in the loving kindness of God revealed in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, true God and true man.
Perhaps you are thinking of becoming a Catholic. If so, please contact us.
I invite you to explore these web pages so you might glimpse something of our life in Christ.
During this time of pandemic we continue to hold each other in prayer asking the Lord to deliver us from all evil.
Thanks to your generosity our parish is in good financial health.
Many of you have been in touch concerning the planned-giving and offertory envelopes. Please do not worry about this at the moment.
You may choose to donate by standing order, direct debit or change the way you give, by following this link parish.rcdow.org.uk/kensington1/donate/

Please pray for us as we pray for you.
Yours in Christ,
Mgr Jim Curry
First Holy Communions
If your child has completed the First Holy Communion preparation, they can make their first holy communion at any Sunday Mass. Please contact Sr Maureen to arrange this. There will be no large group celebrations of first Holy Communions for the foreseeable future.
The Cardinal has granted permission for the priests of the parish to confirm in his name all the candidates who have been prepared. This will be done in small groups.
