“We wish all visitors to this website and to the parish church, every peace and joy. We are a lively, richly diverse and very welcoming parish of the Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark. We extend pastoral care to those living in and around the Tenterden area, including the rural areas within a 6-mile radius.

Dear Parishioners,

Advent Wreath Workshop.

Next Sunday is the First Sunday of Advent. 

Lorraine is doing an Advent Wreath workshop for all the children. The workshop was really well attended last year and everyone really enjoyed the activity.  Tea and coffee will also be available after Mass.  


St Andrew.

This Thursday is the feast of St Andrew, patron saint of our parish. We will pray for our parish at the Holy Hour from 9am and have refreshments after the 10am Mass. 


World Youth Sunday 2023.

This Sunday (26th November) is National Youth Sunday, and the retiring collection will be for the work of the Southwark Catholic Youth Service, which is re-launching 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 also sign up to our network at HERE  to receive regular updates. The Catholic Bishops Conference of England and Wales has produced further World Youth Sunday resources HERE.
