LOOKING AFTER FATHER BONIFACE

READING FOR THE SUMMER


Can I suggest a few ways we can use the summer fruitfully?

1) Read slowly the Gospel of Mark. If you have access to the internet or a Kindle, it will be the English Standard Version that we will use from the First Sunday of Advent.

2) If you prefer, the Acts of the Apostles is a fruitful place to begin.

3) Wisdom from the Western Isles: The Making of a Mystic Paperback by David Torkington

4) Introduction to The Devout Life by St. Francis of Sales

5) The Angry Christian: A Bible-based Strategy to Care for and Discipline a Valuable Emotion by Bert Ghezzi and Brandon Vogt.




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.
