Our altar is dedicated to baby loss awareness remembering bereaved parents, their families and friends, to commemorate the lives of babies who died during pregnancy, at or soon after birth and in infancy.

Candles are available at the altar:

"Lighting a candle is a prayer

When we are gone it stays alight,

Kindling in the hearts and minds of others

The prayer we have already offered,

For those who have died,

For ourselves,

And for those who are grieving.


Having been in contact with  a number of organisations you will find lots of material on the altar in the form of leaflets and contact information to signpost you, and it highlights bereavement support and services available for anyone affected by the death of a baby at any stage. 



Miscarriage is the most common kind of pregnancy loss, affecting around one in four pregnancies.


SANDS (Stillborn and Neonatal Death)  (

SANDS supports anyone who has been affected by the death of a baby before, during or shortly after birth.

the catenian  association

The Catenians are an association of Catholic laymen who are committed to their Faith, their families, to those in need and to each other. Their primary purpose is to establish a network of friends, which enhances their family life,

strengthens their Faith and sustains them in difficult times.

They support each other, the Catholic Church, young people

and those in need. 

Their friendships are developed through meeting together

locally once a month and enjoying a varied programme

of social events together with their families and the

widows of Members.

Orange Blossom

The Church of the Sacred Heart is served by  the Verona Fathers (Comboni Missionaries) within the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton. Our Church offers the liturgical, sacramental and  pastoral services that a Catholic might expect.

There is a Pastoral Team responsible for the organization of all the aspects of the Church in different ministries. 

We are fortunate enough to be able to provide good parking facilities; a hall and kitchen which are available for church-related activities; meeting rooms; toilets; access for the disabled; and a loop system for those with hearing difficulties.

The main house is home to a Community of Verona Fathers, one of whom, Fr. Julio  Ocaña, is charged with the pastoral care of all who attend Church here.
