Outreach and Pastoral Care
Supporting our parishioners
At Immaculate Conception we have formed a strong community and understand that need and hardship can present itself in a number of ways. Through groups like St Vincent De Paul, the Parish priest and our eucharistic ministers we seek to provide continued support to our parishioners by:
Visiting the sick both at home and in hospital
Visiting the lonely
Taking the eucharist to those who are not able to attend mass
If you or someone you know needs this sort of support, please contact the office on 023 8055 5470 email@example.com . The St Vincent De Paul Society can also be contacted on 020 7703 3030.
