Welcome to the Website for Our Lady Immaculate Catholic Church, Westbourne.
As the church is now closed a simple ‘shrine’ has been placed in the entrance lobby, visible through the glass doors. If you are out on your allowed exercise or shopping trip and happen to be passing the church do stop for a moment to say a prayer.
At this challenging time we continue to be the Church, not a building but a community of faith and mutual love united in spirit and in prayer.
Fr Andrew will continue to say mass privately and the Lord continues to grace us with his presence as the Blessed Sacrament remains in the church .
Additional pages have been added to this site which may be helpful. They include spiritual resources (which includes details of Live Streamed masses), a Sunday homily, a blog by Fr Andrew and of course the newsletter. Please check in regularly for the latest.
It is, of course, understood that many may be facing financial challenges at this time and the parish is not exempt. With no Sunday masses the offertory collection (which amounts to about half the parish’s income) has dropped considerably. The continued support from those who contribute through gift aid standing order and envelopes is much appreciated. The new ‘Donate’ button at the top of this page can be used to make contributions (which can be gift aided). Please use this facility for general donations to the church or for the Sunday offertory collection. Those who contribute by envelope, please just keep those until such time as things return to some semblance of normality. For those who may wish to take out a standing order the parish’s bank details are as set out below. At this time of year it is customary to make an Easter Offering which is a personal gift to the priest and which forms a significant part of his personal income. For those who may wish to make a bank transfer again please use the details as set out below but add the reference Easter Offering Many thanks.
