St. Mary Moorfields

Today we helped Fr. Peter Newby of St. Mary Moorfields parish in the City by handing out leaflets with local Mass times. Unlike a Friday evening in Leicester square, it was impossible to talk to anyone beyond Hello-Mass times in the area-Thank you, because everyone was in such a rush to get somewhere or other. It is not a residential area but rather a place where many people work so the weekday Mass congregation is primarily one of people on their lunch break. We have been to St. Mary's once before and are impressed both at how full it is and how many younger people are there - the average age is probably about 40.
