REQUESTING MASS FOR

A PARTICULAR INTENTION:


Mass Offering
A laudable Catholic custom is to have a Mass said for a specific intention.

All Masses, of course, are offered to the glory of God and for the salvation of the whole world, but often there is also a specific intention;
here in the Parish the intentions are
usually printed in the newsletter.

Anyone may request a Mass to be said
for their particular intention.

It is customary, when requesting a Mass,
to make an offering as a way of being
 especially associated with that Mass.

However, it is not necessary
to make an offering.

The usual suggested donation is £10; some give less, some give more, some give nothing.

 Please never feel that you cannot
have a Mass said for your intentions
due to lack of funds.

A Mass costs nothing – except, of course, the life-saving death and resurrection of Jesus.

 Mass Intention envelopes are available
by the entrances of the church.



BAPTISMS Contact Fr. Sean.

MARRIAGES
The Diocese requests couples to give
Fr. Sean at least 6 months notice,
especially if they intend to be married
outside the Parish.



WEDNESDAY 29TH JUNE:
SOLEMNITY OF SS PETER & PAUL


This is a Holyday of Obligation, that is a day when you should attend Holy Mass if you can.



DIOCESAN LOURDES PILGRIMAGE

The Southwark Diocesan Pilgrimage
to Lourdes will take place
between 19th and 26th August.

We are sad that, like most Lourdes
 pilgrimages this year, we have
 not been able to include pilgrims
who need medical support.

At the same time, we are delighted
to be returning to Lourdes
after two years of absence.

Details are available at
 www.tangney-tours.com/pilgrimages/lourdes
/catholic-association
.

Southwark contacts:
Canon Ed Perera (edwardperera@rcaos.org.uk)

and

Bishop Paul Hendricks (paulhendricks@rcaos.org.uk).



TRAINING FOR PARISH
BEREAVEMENT MINISTRY


bereavement support group
We have been encouraged to set up a bereavement support group in each of our parishes by sending two suitable persons
for a day’s training course.

You would need to have
DBS clearance beforehand.

If you are interested, please
Email Father Sean

POPE FRANCIS ON JESUS BEING
THE CENTRE OF OUR LIVES.


Today Jesus puts this crucial question to us, to each of us…It is the decisive question.

It does not allow for a non-committal answer, because it brings into play our entire life.

The question of life demands a response of life.

For it counts little to know the articles of faith if we do not confess Jesus as the Lord of our lives.

Today he looks straight at us and asks,
“Who am I for you?”

As if to say: “Am I still the Lord of your life,
 the longing of your heart, the reason for
your hope, the source of your unfailing trust?”… not merely in words, but in our actions
 and our very lives.

Let us ask ourselves if we are parlour Christians, who love to chat about how
things are going in the Church and the world,
or apostles on the go, who confess Jesus with their lives because they hold him in their hearts.

Those who confess Jesus know that
they are not simply to offer opinions
 but to offer their very lives.

They know that they are not to believe half-heartedly but to “be on fire” with love.

They know that they cannot just “tread water” or take the easy way out, but have to risk putting out into the deep,
 daily renewing their self-offering.

Those who confess their faith in Jesus do as Peter and Paul did: they follow him to the end – not just part of the way, but to the very end.

They also follow the Lord along his way,
not our own ways.

His way is that of new life, of joy and resurrection; it is also the way that passes through the cross and persecution




PARISH DATABASE

Parish Database from Churchsuite
We will soon be introducing a new Parish Database from Churchsuite.

We will be asking you to fill forms out and
also ask for volunteers to help with this
at all Masses.



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.
