Love ought to show itself in deeds more than in words.St Ignatius of Loyola
SAINT ANSELM’S CHURCH, Southall is a wonderfully vibrant, warm and welcoming community, bursting and teeming with life in the highest ethnic minority area in the country (Census 2001). In 2001, a contract between the Archdiocese of Westminster and The Jesuits in the British Province placed the parish under the care of the Society of Jesus.

If multi-cultural churches may be said to be a “taste of heaven” on earth, St Anselm’s is a very good living example. The parish mirrors the ethnic diversity of the wider population: 89% belong to groups other than White British; 76% belong to Asian ethnic groups with 55% being Indian.
