Welcome to Our Lady of the Angels Catholic Church in Erith
Here, on Sundays and weekdays, we gather together for the celebration of the Eucharist. We learn to become committed disciples of Jesus Christ. Here, we learn to practise the charity of the Lord in good works.
We are a community of Christians in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark. The parish is cared for by the Capuchin Franciscan Friars, a branch of the Franciscan Order
The Franciscan link is also clear from the name of our church: Our Lady of the Angels, recalling the little chapel where St Francis of Assisi established his first community of friars. As a parish community we aim to be a welcoming family of brothers and sisters.
Our Mission and Vision; Faith, Family, Formation
Our goal as a dynamic Catholic parish is:
…to energise our faith community…
…to build a strong spiritual foundation for our children;
…to minister to the elderly, sick and housebound;
…to enliven and enrich our parish liturgies;
…to reach out to inactive parishioners;
…to give and support each other in love.
The Penitential Pilgrimage for Men
organised by Br Zbigniew, took place on the 16th March 2018. Men of the Our Lady of the Angels parish walked to the Shrine of the Glorious Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St Simon Stock in Aylesford. We conquer the distance of 17 miles during the 6 hours night walk!!!
Rosary on the Coast for Faith, Life and Peace in the British Isles
This was a day of Pilgrimage and Prayer for the re-flourishing of our Faith, for the grace to build a culture of Life and for true Peace to reign in the hearts of all peoples & Nations.
Recently the faithful of Poland and Ireland have responded to what they sense as a movement of the Holy Spirit to gather around the coasts of their nations and pray to Jesus, the Divine Mercy, for a renewal of faith and respect for human life through the powerful intercession of Our Lady of the Rosary. Having witnessed this, a number of the lay faithful in the British Isles – England, Scotland, Wales and their Isles – have felt the same inspiration and urge to respond.
