A very warm welcome to the website for the Catholic Parish of Our Lady and All Saints. Whether you are new to the parish, just browsing, discovering more about becoming a Catholic, or looking for specific information, we hope that we can be of help and service to you.

Everyone is always welcome at any of our Masses and services – details in the newsletter. We hope that you find us a warm and friendly community, with a lot happening for people of all ages. We have a wonderful youth programme, from children’s liturgy for those aged 4 – 8, through to amazing events run both by and for young people aged 15+.

If you are new to the parish or visiting us do look out for our Mass Reps who you will recognise as they will be wearing badges. They are here to help in any way they can if you have any questions. If you re visiting the website to decide which church or Mass to attend at the weekend you can even call or e-mail the Mass Rep to ask any questions you may want to ask before you come to Mass.

We outreach to those in need locally through the KSC (Knights of St Columba) and SVP (St Vincent de Paul Society). We have four tremendous schools, and do our best to support families in as many ways as we can.

There are usually about 1100 people at the parish Masses over the weekend; amongst them are around a hundred families from India. Adoration is offered for Malayalam speakers, and monthly Mass for those in the Syro-Malabar community. There is a Basildon Filipino Association that includes over a hundred Catholic families, and the Filipino community animate one of the Parish Masses each month. There is a Polish Mass once a month for those who live locally.

The bedrock of what we do is the celebration of the Sacraments. There is daily Mass in the parish, and five Masses at the weekend.

If you cannot find what you are looking for on the website, if you want to know more, if you need to chat in confidence about anything, or if you just want to introduce yourself, please do get in touch at any time.

And again, welcome!

Fr Sabu, Fr Saji, Sr Anne, the Parish Pastoral Assistants and the Parish Mass Reps
