Father Gerard Markey
of the Columban Missionaries
making an appeal next Sunday


The Society of St. Columban is an international Catholic missionary organisation centred on the Eucharist that crosses boundaries of culture and religion to reveal, by word and by action, the Good News of Jesus Christ.

We participate in God’s mission and help
to establish a world of peace with justice
and care for the integrity of creation
 in solidarity with poor, exploited
and marginalised communities.



Marita Gerrard RIP

Marita passed away in Kingston Hospital
on Sunday 17th October.

She will be dearly missed by her mother
Rita Gerrard and sister and brother in law Claudia and Michael Mclaughlin.

Staying at home: a new resource for young people
Southwark Catholic Youth Service has worked with some 6th form students on a mini-series ‘Christ is Alive’. This is an invitation for young people to focus on staying spiritually healthy and to ponder some of the big questions about life, through journaling and prayer.

This may be particularly relevant during this difficult time of lockdown. www.youtube.com/southwarkcatholicyouthservice
