The Diocese co-operates fully with CSAS, the Catholic Safeguarding Advisory Service, which aims to help the Church become an example of best practice in the Safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults, and develop a "culture of vigilance" to ensure that children and vulnerable adults in our care are kept safe from harm.

PARISH MISSION: Our Parish Team suggested that we could do with a Mission here. We have a great congregation but we could improve considerably to carry out the Mission that Christ gave to us in Wimbledon Park. We thought that SPRING 2019 would be the best. Having looked around at who might lead us, we found an excellent Jesuit, Fr Simon Bishop. This weekend we welcome Fr Simon and his team of 3 lay people to make a preliminary visit to get to know us. Friday night of 20th, Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd April. I would dearly love ANYONE who would like to help this Team prepare for our Mission by giving advice, insights, information of past Missions etc, or just anyone who loves our Parish – to meet with their Team. The Formal Meeting will take place after 10.30am Mass on Sunday but if you cannot come then, after 6pm Mass or anytime just pop in to say, ‘Hello’. Yes, really. Please do not be shy to make them welcome and to help them understand who we are and what are our particular needs. Every parish is different and is made up of different types of people. So, they want your insights. Thank you.

GOING INTO HOSPITAL: I shall be going to St George’s Hospital for a little heart valve replacement this Tuesday 24th April for about a week and then will be away for about 2 weeks or so. Hopefully I will be back for light duties in mid-May, but will be not allowed to drive for 6 weeks after the operation.
We are blessed that Fr Michael Holman SJ or one of his colleagues from Wimbledon will be pleased to supply here for WEEKENDS during that period. Fr Michael is a lovely man and I am so pleased he has agreed.
Weekends, First Confessions, maybe First Communion, Confirmation, Baptisms and Funerals will be covered as well as Baptism Preparation but not First Communion Parents’ Preparation.
Please watch the newsletter so you are not caught out by changes.
In Emergency the Jesuits are happy to be called. Fr Michael’s mobile: 07816 872 592. Jesuit Community: 020 8947 8294.
