The Agency for Evangelisation and Catechesis team

Archbishop John is calling the Archdiocese of Southwark to be an ‘evangelising and missionary archdiocese.’ As part of an answer to this call the Agency for Evangelisation and Catechesis (AEC) is developing a missionary volunteer network consisting of prayer, people and parish plans – Some Definite Service. What might be your particular part to play in this, some definite service? For more information, visit:

The event, entitled ‘Building A Better Marriage’, will provide you with valuable insights into your communication skills and the call of the Church to the married. There is no group sharing. This is not marriage counselling but a chance to make average-to-good marriages a bit better – whether you married five years ago or 50. Booking is essential: telephone 07983 524 727 or email

 Annual Cathedral Marriage Mass: Are you celebrating your 1st, 10th, 25th, 40th, 50th, 60th or any later wedding anniversary this year? Or did you last year?

Gift Aid Volunteers: “Dear Parishioners, as a matter of urgency we are asking for 2 or 3 volunteers to come forward to help run the church gift aid scheme.

If you are willing to help would you either contact Fr Philip through the presbytery or the parish website, or phone Philip directly on 07805950762.”

Gift Aid Boxes: Gift Aid Envelops from June onward are available in the Parish Centre after every Mass. Please, remember your Gift Aid Envelop Number so you may easily find your box. If you wish to start Gift Aid Donations, please see someone there to help you.
