Late Summer Evening

The Guildhall Alumni Choir is very pleased to announce that its first live singing event since the relaxation of lock down will take place in St Mary Magdalene, Rowington Close, Paddington on Saturday Sept 25th at 5pm.

Some readers may remember the video made by them called, ‘Devotional Music for Holy Week‘, posted on this website in March this year. Members of the choir look forward to meeting any who may have seen it, along with others who live in this lovely part of London.

Covid protocols, as required at the time, will be fully observed.’

Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

On Sunday 15th August, the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we were delighted to welcome the Bishop of Fulham. Not only did Bishop Jonathan celebrate and preach, but he also consecrated our new altar, which you can see in the photo. The altar has been funded by the Barker-Mill Foundation, and was made by A J Brett & Co. It is made from limed English oak, and incorporates the marble altar stone from a previous altar at St Mary Mags, and a relic of St Teresa of Kolkata. Its design echoes the balustrade built by Martin Travers in the 1920s.
