The Most Rev. Peter Smith, Archbishop of Southwark: Do you support Catholic schools and the right of Catholics to send their children to them? Then we need you to make your voice heard. The Government is making a critical decision on whether to overturn the admissions cap which prevents Catholic schools from allowing all Catholic pupils to attend. They have acknowledged that this policy discriminates against Catholics and promised to abandon it, now we need you to tell them not to make a U-turn on their promise to Catholics.

Visit http://catholicnews.org.uk or search for Catholic Education in your search engine to write to the government urging them to drop  their policy which bans new Catholic schools.

Mass Offerings: We have a number of spaces available. A mass is the highest gift to parents, family and friends both living and deceased.

The Sick and House Bound: Fr. Henry would be pleased to visit any parishioner who is house bound or sick and needs a visit or Communion. Please do let him know about this.

With deep sorrow we announce the death of Bob Kenderdine who died recently at Kingston Hospital. Rest in peace Bob.

First Holy Communion Class: Lessons have resumed on Sundays after the 10:00 Mass (term time only). Please keep the children, their families and Catechists in your prayers.

Website: Please visit the Parish website for any information you need about the Parish.

Walking Aid: A very kind parishioner is offering a walking aid to someone who needs it. It has a seat plus shopping bag (three in one). If you know someone who needs it please contact Fr. Henry.

Thank You: To all who came for the Mass on Thursday and to all who worked in the background to prepare such a beautiful celebration. To Wendy, Marie Baxter, Margaret and get team, the ladies who arranged the flowers, Rick and his team, Richard, the wonderful choir, all those who provided the food and drinks, the ladies who set up and served the meal and a big thanks to Amal and Ethel who provided the meal.
