Harlow is 75: The beautiful global village of Our Lady of Fatima Church

Communities / Wed 21st Dec 2022 at 09:15am

AS we near the end of our Harlow is 75 interviews, we wanted to showcase and celebrate Our Lady of Fatima Church in Harlow.

With many masses in Polish, a large community from the Philippines and members of many other nations, it has real feel of a global village and perhaps encapsulates, the spirit of our Harlow is 75 project.

We went down to speak to Father Bogdan about his life in Poland and the culture and community of Our Lady of Fatima Church.

This film is dedicated to Father Paul Boland.

To mark the town’s 75th anniversary, Harlow Council and Your Harlow have launched a project which records the diverse history, heritage, and culture of the people and groups which are part of modern-day Harlow.

The Harlow at 75 project is made up of audio-visual recordings of conversations with both individuals and groups that explores their lives abroad before resettling in Harlow. The project reflects that we are a local but global new town and explores themes such as the definition of “Home”.

Lovely church, very friendly. Plain on the outside but beautiful on the inside especially the wonderful windows.After his ordination in London my son did his first service there. Happy memories.
