For those who are sick:
After Fifty five years the Daughters of St Paul are relocating.
How we shall miss you. You have given a wonderful witness to the Gospel in the midst of our world. First in Church Street and latterly on Kensington High Street. So many of you have become our friends. You have been with us in our sadness and joy.
Your welcome in the Pauline book and media centre was always warm and genuine. Those bonds of friendship and faith will keep you in our minds and hearts. As a religious congregation you have always sought to read the Signs of the Times. As you now respond to the Lord's call to walk a new path we assure you of our prayers. Thank you for your faith, friendship and courage.
You can read their statement below.
We wish to inform you that our Pauline Books & Media Centre at
199 Kensington High Street
will close on
Saturday 24th October 2020
We are most grateful for the many blessings bestowed on our community and mission over the past fifty five years.
We thank all the people who over these years have supported us but, most importantly, who have believed in and supported the mission of the Pauline Book Centre, not only as a place where they could purchase something but a place where, in the words of our
Founder, Blessed Alberione,
‘the truth and love of Jesus Christ are found and shared’.
We hold special memories of many our supporters and customers, some of who have gone before us to God in faith.

Our Lady of Victories, pray for us.
Your invitation to Stella Maris live-streamed Centenary Mass (Sunday 4th October at 3pm)

To mark the beginning of our centenary year we will be holding a live-streamed Mass celebrated by Archbishop Philip Tartaglia of Glasgow. We would be most grateful if you could kindly invite your parishioners, through your parish newsletter and e-newsletter this coming weekend, to join us online to share in this very special celebration on Sunday 4th October 4th at 3pm. The Mass will be streamed live at www.stellamaris.org.uk/centenarymass We hope that you and some of your parishioners can join us online for this historic occasion.

We are limited by social distancing requlations. Individual should wear a face covering. A household or family can sit together. Please sit where indicated by the blue marks on the benches.
It is essential that you register for a place at Mass. You can do this via our microsite: https://parish.rcdow.org.uk/kensington1/events/ With the number of parishioners returning from Holidays we anticipate greater demand for places. We will have to give priority to those who have pre-registered.
If you do not register and simply turn up you may have to wait to see if the number of pre-booked palaces have been exceeded. It may be necessary to ask you to come back later. We ask your patience and cooperation.
There is at current no obligation for the faithful to attend Sunday Mass. You can attend Mass on any weekday. All our Masses are live streamed on the main page of our website.
We will keep the provision of Mass under review so as to provide an opportunity for as many parishioners as possible to attend.
Don’t forget you face covering, if you are able to wear one.
There is one event, but many ways to get involved:
Option 1: Sleep In… your garden, car, own home on the floor, or anywhere that’s safe.
Option 2: Sleep In… small socially distanced groups at a location of your choosing (so long as it is
safe for you to do so and you follow the latest Government guidelines)
Option 3: Sleep Out… at Duke of York Square (Government guidelines permitting).
