Join us at Aylesford Priory in October for a day dedicated to learning more about women’s issues, including what it means to be a Catholic woman; how to improve mother-daughter communication; how fertility affects our lives at every stage; and how to grow in the faith. Mums and daughters will have plenty of time to talk through the issues together and build their relationship, as well as meet other Catholic mothers and daughters. Tickets are £120 per mother-daughter pair, with an Early Bird rate of £100. Visit for more details.

On Sat 29th September at 2pm we will celebrate a Mass of Thanksgiving for 21 years of DMJ Friends of Ahotokurom. Our relationship with Ahotokurom has been so fruitful – both in terms of supporting our brothers and sisters in need, and also in developing our own understanding, relationships and creating a channel for mission and hope. It is a relationship that is by no means all ‘one way’. As an expression of all the development that has been enabled through Gods love, we want to invite YOU to join in thanksgiving.
The mass will be at Holy Cross Catholic Church, Sangley Road, Catford, SE6 2JS and it will be followed by afternoon tea in the hall when Dr Mark Mantey and the DMJ Friends of Ahoto will give a brief update. The whole event and Dr Mantey’s air fare has been sponsored, so this event is at no cost to our charitable funds. Please RSVP and register for catering papers using the following link
If you don’t have access to the internet please contact the Parish office.
Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time Weekend of July 21/22, 2018
In today’s second reading, St. Paul reminds us that Christ is creating a new world order: one that brings about relationships based on love, peace, reconciliation, hope and unity. As a Eucharistic community, we are stewards of Christ’s new creation. How are we promoting peace and reconciliation in our own lives? How are we showing love for our neighbours? What are we doing to encourage unity and understanding among those with whom we gather around the Lord’s Table each week?
