Founded in 1897 from Downside Abbey, Ealing Abbey was originally a parish in the Archdiocese of Westminster. In 1955 it was given the status of abbey by Pope Pius XII.
The Ealing Abbey Choir of Boys' and Mens' voices sing at Sunday Mass. The choir appeared on Songs of Praise in 2006. It has an active programme of music recital and other choirs are sometimes accommodated.
