ALL ARE WELCOME

We are part of the Lewisham Deanery and a parish of Archdiocese of Southwark
Please take a  look inside our Church.

Whenever we come into the presence of God in this holy church of
Holy Cross - Catford,we experience both invisible communion with God
and visible communion with each other. For more than a century, this beautiful church has been a spiritual power House for people
to have shared in this invisible and visible communion.
Please come and taste this unconditional love of God and to experience this friendly atmosphere in our Holy Cross parish.
Fr Antony

Dear Parishioner,

Synod of Synodality - Holy Cross Parish Response Summary Report
Eight Synod Listening Sessions took place in the Parish in October and November 2021, including one online. Notes were taken at each and, after the last session, were combined and recurring themes were pulled out to produce the final document. These themes were COMMUNION, PARTICIPATION & MISSION. For the full version please see the online Parish Newsletter or parish website.
Notes on the pandemic:
 Many noted that the pandemic brought us together in new and different ways, including online.
 Others felt strongly that online meetings were no replacement for face to face.
 Everyone missed coming together, physically for the Eucharist.
 Some felt strongly that the Church did not do enough to fight to stay open during the pandemic lockdown periods.
 Many felt the pandemic was an opportunity for reflection on how and why we do things, and an opportunity for change.
You can still respond to the consultation up to the 18th February 2022 if you wish to. This is done via the diocesan website:-

Fr Antony

OUR PARISH RESPONSE TO COVID 19 PANDEMIC - Updates

COVID SECURITY GUIDELINES : Following the recent changes(Friday 10 dec) in the regulations from the Government, the parish has issued updated guidelines for continued safe and covid-secure worship in the church.The latest document is Guidances for Churches December 2021

  • Please note that the Mass times have been reviewed : See below (Mass Times and Intentions)
All the Masses will be live-streamed: https://holy-cross-stream.click2stream.com

  • With respect to the current situation with the omicron variant it is important to ensure the following points are followed in our churches:
  • That people displaying any symptoms of covid-19 should stay at home and not travel to church or participate in person.

  • That hand sanitiser is used by everyone attending the Church.

  • Concerning face masks, some form of face covering will be required in most public indoor venues, including places of worship. However, exemptions exist for various reasons: legitimate health reasons, as has always been the case.

  • That there is good ventilation and air throughput in the building; in this case, because of climatic conditions, please do wrap up warmly when coming to the church as we may need to leave doors open.

  • That a positive message encouraging people to get vaccinated and have the booster jab, when able, is delivered whenever possible.

  • That people who are engaged in a form of pastoral ministry which involves ministry to the housebound, sick, and vulnerable, should take regular lateral flow tests to ensure they are safe to do so. These are free from the NHS.
