New Parishoners

Welcome to the Parish of St Benedict’s Ealing

As you will see, by browsing through the site, we are a thriving Parish served by Benedictine Monks from the Monastery next door to the Church. There is a great variety of Masses each weekend including a 6.00pm Vigil Mass on Saturday evenings. The first Mass on Sunday morning is at 8.00am (on the first Sunday of the month this is celebrated in Latin using the missal of Paul VI), the 9.00am Mass is especially for families with children, Mass for families with babies and toddlers is held in the Parish Hall at 10.15am, the 10.30am Mass is the Monastic Conventual Mass (during term time the Ealing Abbey Choir sing at this Mass), the various rites associated with RCIA are usually celebrated at the 12.00 noon Mass, and there is also a young people’s Mass at 7.00pm in the evening.

The map of the Parish shows which of the Parish Priests covers your home (see the The Parish section or link here).

If you are new to the parish please introduce yourself to one of the parish clergy. They will be very happy to arrange a time to come and visit and celebrate a blessing of your home.

On the first Sunday of each month there is a Welcome Desk staffed by volunteer parishioners at the Church entrance at the top of the steps. They are there to help with your inquiries about parish life. If you are new to the parish or wish to help with this ministry please introduce yourself.

There is a New Parishioner’s Reception each November. This is hosted by the congregation of the 10:15 am Family Mass at approximately 11:30 am in the Parish Hall. Please refer to the Calendar pages for the latest information.
