Welcome to Our Lady of Sorrows Roman Catholic Church.

A warm welcome to you all,

"On this mountain, for all peoples,  
Yahweh Sabaoth is preparing  
A banquet of rich food, a banquet  
of fine wines, of succulent food, of  
well-strained wines.   On this  
mountain, he has destroyed the veil  
which used to veil all peoples  
the pall enveloping all nations;  
He has destroyed death forever.  
Lord Yahweh has wiped away
the tears from every cheek;  
He has taken his people's shame everywhere on earth  
For Yahweh has spoken."  

(Isaiah 25: 6–8)  

This is God's dream for all humanity !!!!

God is envisioning a world where all people from every nation, culture and tradition could be able to come together and celebrate life in its fullness.

God is dreaming of a world without racial, social, cultural, age or sexual discrimination.

God is yearning for a world without boundaries, a community which is inclusive, safe and hospitable towards everyone.

A community in which one can celebrate and ritualise life in all its intense experiences and emotions.

A community where one can call home!!!

A community where God dwells within!!!

We, at Our Lady of Sorrows, acknowledge that we are still pilgrims on a journey and yet hope that we will make a difference and help to make God's dream a reality in our world today!!!

Hopefully, in going through our website, you will be imbued by the Spirit of God's dream as well.

With affection

Rev. Fr. Vincent George, CM.

A beginning!
This parish was founded by the English Province of the Capuchin Franciscans in the 1850s, to serve the Catholic Community in the Peckham area of South-East London. It aims to bring Christ into people's lives, in a part of London that is relatively poor, culturally diverse - but where there is also great enthusiasm and openness to God.
