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

Very Rev. Fr. Richard Diala, CM.

(Parish Priest)


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 in to 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.
