Pope Francis Prayer Intentions for May 2024

Pope’s Prayer Intention: For the formation of religious and seminarians

We pray that religious women and men, and seminarians grow in their own vocations through their human, pastoral, spiritual and community formation, leading them to be credible witnesses to the Gospel.

It may not be possible to update the website for the next couple of weeks but you can still access and download the Newsletter from the Church microsite at

Please do NOT attend Mass if you are unwell or have any Covid symptoms]

There is still some risk associated with gathering for sustained periods in enclosed spaces and therefore there needs to be continued caution by all against infection. This, however, has to be balanced against the need to move forward safely towards a normal lifestyle. It is important that we continue to ensure that the Church remains a safe place where people can gather to worship. Consequently, while keeping in place some of our existing rules, we continue to review these on an ongoing basis. From Monday 1st May, the wearing of masks in Church will become an individual decision. We will still leave a supply of masks at both entrances to the Church for those who feel more comfortable wearing one. Please respect each individual choice. While formal social distancing is no longer required you should be sensitive to the needs of others around you. Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated.


It is no longer necessary to book to come to Mass at the moment.


Offertory Envelopes and other donations can be placed in the Collection Box at the entrance of the Church or at the exit. Please no coinage at this time.

There are a number of cashless methods now available:

1. Standing Order [preferred method]

2. Make a donation via our website: https://parish.rcdow.org.uk/wembleyprestonroad/donate/

3. Via Virgin Money Giving [state reason for donation in the message box].


4. Via Dona [the company who supply our card readers].


Donations, Mass Intentions and Repository payments can also be made via new card readers in Church

THE PARADOX OF ABUNDANCE  Over 800 million people go hungry each day. Yet the world produces over 4 billion tonnes of food and we only need 3.7 billion tonnes to feed everyone. From all this food produced, a third is wasted. As Pope Francis said, "Each of us has a role to play in transforming food systems for the benefit of people and the planet." Let’s respond to his call! CAFOD’s new campaign is called Fix the Food System. Please visit: www.cafod.org.uk/food for more information.
