Sunday 8 October: 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Our Lady of the Crays is a Christian, Roman Catholic parish in St Mary Cray, Orpington in south London.

Holy Mass is celebrated each day and the Sacrament of Reconciliation and Catholic devotions are available. 

If you are new to the parish, please join us for tea or coffee after each Sunday Mass.

Please also let us know who you are!  The best way is by filling out a new parishioner form, and emailing it to Fr Cyriacus, or handing it to him after Mass.

Our spacious hall is available to hire at evenings and weekends, and during school holidays. It has disabled / wheelchair access.

We're in the Archdiocese of Southwark. We merged in 2010 from St Joseph's parish, St Mary Cray and St Peter and St Paul's parish, St Paul's Cray. 

Going into hospital?

Hospital iconIf you or a loved one go into hospital, please inform the Hospital Chaplaincy and Fr Cyriacus Okafor.

This is essential to receive Holy Communion or the sacrament of the sick.

The Data Protection Act does not allow hospital staff to let the parish know when Catholics enter hospital.
