It gives me great pleasure to announce that Archbishop John has appointed Mgr. Matthew Dickens as the new parish priest of St Thomas Becket parish, Wandsworth West Hill.
As many of you may know, Mgr. Dickens is the Vicar General and Chancellor of the Archdiocese - senior roles which he will continue to hold, alongside being your new parish priest.
We look forward to welcoming Mgr. Dickens for his first Sunday on the weekend of the 5th – 6th June. Please keep your new parish priest in your prayers as he prepares for his new appointment.
The first weekend of June will also be my last weekend in Wandsworth, and my final Mass will be the First Holy Communion Mass at 12pm on June 6th.
There will be Divine Mercy Devotions held in the church for Divine Mercy Sunday (11 April 2021).
