Rejoicing in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England, St Mary’s seeks to honour Jesus in Word and Sacrament, and in the service of the people of this area. Over its 190-year history the church has been at the heart of the community, not least in the early part of the C20th when the St Pancras Housing Association, founded by Fr Basil Jellicoe, transformed the slums of Somers Town. It is a legacy we’re proud of and which inspires our continued witness today.
The highpoint of our week is the Sung Parish Mass at 11am on Sundays. Our diverse congregation comes together to celebrate the Faith handed down to us in reverent yet contemporary worship. We have a thriving Kids’ Club which meets during the Mass, and there is a chance for all to come together over coffee afterwards.
We aim to keep the doors of St Mary’s doors open to all as often as we can during the day. Many find the church’s prayerful atmosphere to be a regular antidote to the pressures of city life. Our said Masses during the week take place in the Holy Family Chapel, to which all are welcome.
