Father Kevan Hayden Farewell Mass

The people of the parish are invited to the 11.15am Mass on Sunday 21st November
to say a formal farewell
to Father Kevan after 23 years of service.

There will be an opportunity to
contribute to his farewell gift.

A collection at the end of Mass on the weekends of the 6th/7th
and 13th/14th of November will be taken.

The following tribute to Father Kevan
has been made:
  • He was instrumental in the funding and building of our Church Hall.


  • He encouraged young people to return to the Church and participate in Local and International projects.


  • He encouraged parishioners to organize Quiz Nights, Barn Dances and many other events.


  • He had an infectious laugh.





Working together as a Church

An important message
from Archbishop John Wilson.


Synod 2122

A special worldwide consultation process has been set in motion leading to a Synod (meaning an assembly of clergy and the root word from Greek, sun and way i.e. making our way together in Christ) leading towards
a gathering of Bishops in 2023.

Everyone who is a baptised member
of the Church is entitled to share
their views, thoughts and concerns
across the Archdiocese of Southwark.

By listening always first to the Lord,
and then sharing with each other,
we seek to strengthen our collective
 witness to the Lord Jesus.

Please do all you can to support
this process as we journey together.

The Holy Father launched
the consultation process f
or the Universal Church last weekend.

This Sunday, 17th October 2021,
Archbishop John Wilson will lkjm,aunch the Consultation Process in Southwark with a livestreamed Mass at St George’s Cathedral
at 10am youtu.be/aiCHG9JuqaY

Archbishop John has written
a pastoral letter to be read out this
weekend and prayer cards will be available.

Please keep the Consultation process
 in your prayers:

May the Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of the Apostles and Mother of the Church,
intercede for us as we journey together
on the path that God sets before us.

As in the Upper Room at Pentecost, may her maternal care and intercession accompany us as we build up our communion with one another and carry out our mission in the world. With her, we say together as the People of God: ‘Let it be with me according to your word’ (Lk 1:38)

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

Welcome to the Web Site for the Catholic Parish of St. Matthias, Worcester Park, in the Archdiocese of Southwark.

Our Parish is a lively Catholic community situated on the borders of three Boroughs, Sutton, Kingston, and Epsom & Ewell. It stretches from the A3 in the north to the A24 in the south and includes Worcester Park, Malden Manor, Old Malden, Malden Green, and areas of New Malden, Motspur Park and North Cheam.

That area of the Parish in the Borough of Epsom and Ewell is in the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton but served from St. Matthias.
