Catholic Festival of Faith

Jesus said, ‘I am the gate. Anyone who enters through me will be safe: he will go freely in and out and be sure of finding pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I have come that they may have life and have it to the full’. (John 10: 9-10)

Our theme for 2019, “Life to the Full’ is based upon the above Scripture passage. Jesus is the gate through whom we enter, in whom we find our safety and in whom our lives are filled to abundance. This is our prayer for ourselves, and for all those we will encounter on the streets of Leicester Square come Festival Day!


Fr Pascal Boidin, Rector of NDF, writes...

In Notre Dame de France, we live, pray, and work
just off Leicester Square, in the bustling heart of London.
How can our Church be a beacon of hope for the so many
visitors of the West End?  
In trying to answer this question, Spirit in the City was born,
the Catholic Festival at the heart of London! 
Join in and you will experience the joy of the Gospel.
