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.
