Wishing you all a very holy and healthy Christmas and New Year from Canon Michael, Fr. Roshy, Deacon Con and office staff at St. Teresa’s Parish
Last week we learned of the passing of Canon Colm Acton which occurred on Saturday 3rd December at St Teresa’s Nursing Home in Wimbledon. Canon Acton was parish priest at St John Fisher, Merton for 35 years. Please remember him, his family, friends, fellow priests and all the parishioners of St. John Fisher Parish and Primary School as he returns home to the Eternal Kingdom of God our Father.

May Canon Acton Rest in Peace and Rise in Glory
We have to vacate the shop by the end of the year. We have also received official confirmation that our landlords applied to the local Council to demolish all the shops on the parade and have therefore terminated our lease.
Therefore we are selling all Communion Gifts and Cards at half price or less because we have no choice but to close the business that we started in 1998 for Christening and Holy Communion business at Clothes Line South-West London SW20 9NQ and website www.firstholycommunion.co.uk
All items are available while stocks last online or in the shop. Please inform parents of the closing-down half-price sale. Thank you for your help
Kind regards Delia & Canute, Clothes Line
The Archbishop’s Appeal seeks to invest faith, hope, love, and charity into three key areas of mission and ministry in the Archdiocese of Southwark.
Youth and Evangelisation
To strengthen the formation of young people in the faith within our schools and parishes, enhance the faith life of parishioners, support the work of parish catechists, enhance the faith journeys of new Catholics; and for Southwark to become an evangelising and missionary Archdiocese.
Our Faith in Action
To show compassionate and active service in the world around us through love for all people: the protection of human dignity, respect for the inter-connectedness of our world and common home, hearing the cry of the poor and the cry of the Earth. Supporting social outreach projects in parishes and schools.
Clergy Care and Formation
To care for sick and retired priests in their old age and ill health. Supporting the ongoing formation of our priests and deacons. Providing on-going formation of clergy in active ministry. Supporting the work of the vocations team and formation of seminarians and deacons.
Pooled together, your support can have significant impact in our faith community. A portion of the monies raised will be granted to parishes and Catholic schools to support local projects.
Please support the Archbishop’s Appeal today, every gift is welcome.
