A Warm Welcome to the Catholic Church in Kendal
We hope you enjoy exploring this website, seeing something of what we do.
We would be delighted if you came to join us in person.
Drop in for Flood victims: from the week beginning October 17th, St George’s will host a support session on Tuesdays, at lunchtime, and we will open our parish centre every Thursday, continuing to offer simple food, free wi-fi, a space where children can play, (and plenty of games too) and a chance to talk.
The Cumbria Refugee Action Group draws to our attention that ‘The Jungle’ in Calais is about to be demolished and many, many vulnerable people will lose what has in effect been their home.
EMERGENCY DONATIONS NEEDED by OCTOBER 12th A group of local volunteers has arranged to take a van-full of emergency supplies to the refugees being evicted from ‘The Jungle’ in a few weeks, and we urgently need donations. There’s a very specific and up-to-date list of items needed, the highest priority ones being:3-4 season sleeping bags
- Thick blankets
- Roll mats/camping mats
- 1l bottles of water
- Big backpacks and rolling suitcases
A full list of other items needed is given here: CALAIS REFUGEES. Please only donate items on this list – other items can’t be accepted and only create more work for the already over-worked volunteers in Calais! Thanks very much for your kind donations.

Roads to justice and peace Our Parish Justice and Peace group would like to draw your attention to this article in the Tablet, which considers Catholic practice in the light of what the new Prime Minister said when she took up office earlier this year
Twenty four children made their First Communion on Trinity Sunday and it was a great celebration. As in previous years, they laid the altar, brought the gifts, read the first and second lessons, the psalm and the bidding prayers, and generally made the whole congregation very happy.
