Welcome from Fr. Keith


Welcome from Fr. Keith

Welcome to the Catholic Parish of St. Mary of the Angels. We are a friendly community serving Bayswater and part of Notting Hill, including Westbourne Grove and Portobello Road. Our Church, recently restored to its former glory, combines sheer beauty with a homely and welcoming atmosphere.


Ordained a priest 37 years ago, I have been parish priest here since January 2010, and this is definitely one of the most fascinating and welcoming communities I have served in. With a great mix of people from all sorts of social and ethnic backgrounds, it is a parish everyone can feel at home in.


Whether you have been a regular practising Catholic or not in the past, we welcome you to worship with us on Sunday, and to let us know any ways you would like to contribute to our parish life, or in which we can be of help to you.


Our parish office is open Monday-Friday from 9am to 1pm, when Bernadette, our parish secretary, is there to welcome you and answer any questions you have. On this website and in our weekly parish newsletter you will find more information about the activities of our parish and the Catholic community in Westminster diocese.


Please introduce yourselves to me after Sunday Mass, or during the week, and may God bless you.

Mgr. Keith Barltrop, Parish Priest. keithbarltrop@rcdow.org.uk
