Parish Administrator: Vacancy

There is a vacancy for a part-time Parish Administrator here at St Mary's East Finchley, in succession to Mrs Yvonne Merola. For more details see the notice board in the porch or the diocesan jobs website


With great sadness we announce the death of two parishioners. Christine Cunningham died immediately after Christmas. Christine was a reader for many years and well known to parishioners. She leaves her husband Noel and three boys.

Kitty Smith has also passed away. Always courageous, in recent years she had attended in a wheel-chair assisted by her husband John.

May they rest in peace. Pray for those who loved them in this hour of sorrow.

Funeral details to be notified.


On Friday 4th January there is the funeral of Domenica Smosarki at Marylebone Crematorium at 11 am.

Also on Friday 4th January we have the funeral Mass in church of Agnes O’Boy at 12 noon which will be celebrated by her son, Fr Michael O’Boy.

May these and all the faithful departed rest in peace.

Ordination of Julian Davies to diaconate: Correction

Julian Davies was in residence with Fr Terry for a few months before going on to Allen Hall the diocesan seminary. He will be ordained deacon on Saturday 26th January at Five Precious Wounds church, Stonebridge, Brentfield Rd NW10 8ER. The ordination will be at 12 midday. He has extended an open invitation to parishioners. This is a correction because in last week’s newsletter the ordination as deacon was announced as taking place in June.
