Welcome to the Catholic Parish of St Edward the Confessor, Romford

We are delighted that our church is now open for private prayer. More details in the newsletter. In the community, through our school & volunteers, we continue to help, support & serve you in any possible way. You are prayed for each day. 

The Church is open:


SATURDAYS 10am – 2pm

SUNDAYS 12noon – 2pm

THANK YOU to those who have already signed up to serve as “volunteer stewards” to ensure the church can open safely. THANK YOU to those who helped clean the church this week. If you would like to serve as a volunteer please email romford@dioceseofbrentwood.org and Julia, our parish secretary, will give you more details. 

Could you donate to support the parish? If you already have a Standing Order, THANK YOU. If you normally put cash in the offertory, could you make an online donation? There is a quick and easy link via the Diocesan site – select our parish from the list, when you click here: Online Donation. We also happily accept envelopes through the presbytery door, gold bars, the widow’s mite or pearls of great price … 

Through our St Vincent de Paul Society and Golden Club, we are keeping in contact with the elderly, frail, those who are in particular need, and those who are alone. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you need help.

Our Parish Priest, Fr Tom, is unwell, and asks for your prayers. It is best to contact the parish by email at romford@dioceseofbrentwood.org and someone will get back to you as soon as possible. In an emergency, please email the Associate Priest, Fr Dominic – frdominic@dioceseofbrentwood.org – or phone him on 01277373959

To join a celebration of Mass online, Fr Dominic is offering Mass each Sunday at 10.30am via the Youth Service Livestream – https://www.youtube.com/c/brentwoodcys. There is also a Youth Mass each Wednesday evening at 8pm. 

The community of St Edward’s welcomes you. We have a great diversity of background and culture, nationality and age in our congregation and everyone is very welcome. We look forward to the time when we can gather together again as a community, and in the meantime we keep our NHS staff, teachers, nurses, doctors, supermarket workers, public transport drivers, care workers and cleaners particularly in prayer, as well as the many young families in the parish, those who are shielding for medical reasons, those who are ill, and those who grieve. When we reopen, we would love to meet you here at St Edward’s – you will be most welcome. May the Lord be with you, always.
