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
