WORLD YOUTH SUNDAY

This Sunday (26th November) is the
National Youth Sunday, and the retiring collection will be for the Southwark Catholic Youth Service, which is relaunching several activities in 2024 for those aged 10-35.

For more details about what is on offer
please see our website tinyurl.com/scys1 .

Please sign up to our network at tinyurl.com/scysnetwork
to receive regular updates.

The Catholic Bishops Conference
of England and Wales has produced
further World Youth Sunday resources at worldyouthsunday.org/wyd2023



REQUESTING MASS
FOR A PARTICULAR INTENTION


Anyone may request a Mass
to be said for their 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 do not 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.

We now have the 2024 diary so your intentions for next year can be recorded.

If you have any particular dates in mind
that you wish to acknowledge,
do let us know at the earliest opportunity.

If the date you request is unavailable,
unless stipulated, the next available date
and time will be offered.



CAFOD ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN
CRISIS APPEAL


Donate to CAFOD's Israeli-Palestinian Crisis Appeal at https://cafod.org.uk/ipc or call 0303 303 3030 to support those affected and get funds to local trusted experts in Gaza and southern Israel who have been working along side communities helping those most in need.

Your donation will help support aid workers providing urgent humanitarian aid including food, water, and emergency shelter to those in need. "Thank you for your prayers."



ST. CECILIA CHRISTMAS FAIR

Please support our local Catholic school community by attending the St. Cecilia's Catholic Primary School Christmas Fair.

Date - Saturday 2nd December
Time - from 12 noon until 3pm

Location - London Road Sutton SM3 9DL

Activities on offer - Activities for children
and grown ups, Santa's Grotto,
family photo booth, carols by
the school choir, Christmassy disco.

The Parent Teacher Association of
St. Cecilia's greatly appreciates
your support and hopes to see you there.



CHRISTMAS OPPORTUNITY

This Christmas there will be a number of people coming to Mass for the first time this year and perhaps for the very first time.

Each member of the community has an important part in fostering a sense of joy
and welcome at the advent of a visitor.

Share a smile, make an introduction, budge up on the pews, guide them through the Mass. This Christmas try to be one of the reasons that our visitors come back in the New Year.

If you think you can volunteer to help at Masses during this period please join us for a chat in the Parish Hall after any Weekend Mass on the 1st Sunday of Advent,
the 2nd/3rd December.





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.
