Congratulations are in order to

Harvey Martin

for winning a competition of

‘The Writers Forum Magazine’

on the theme of a stone with the following poem

Luke 3:8: "For I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham".

 A Child For Abraham

"Plucked from the banks of the river Jordan;

washed clean from grit and mud;

smooth, light, polished and chosen;

skipping across the vastness of oceans;

one stone: launched by a Heavenly hand;

skimming, spinning, then flying free;

and bound for the Promised Land."

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

idows of members.

The Catholic Universe

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.
