Sacred Heart Church, in Wimbledon, a Roman Catholic parish in the Archdiocese of Southwark, and until recently served by the Jesuits of the British Province, welcomes you to our website. As one of the largest parishes in England, we hope this site highlights the dynamic community that has been a place of worship for over a century. At the heart of our parish are the many people of all ages who work, study, pray and share their lives together. We invite and encourage you to explore, discover and visit the Sacred Heart.
Details of the main services for Palm Sunday, Holy Week, the Easter Triduum and Easter Sunday are also in the calendar
It was with a heavy heart that I walked out to preside at Masses last Sunday since I knew already what you would soon be learning - that I have shortly to be leaving you: at the end of May. Just a few days before, I was told that I had been appointed an Auxiliary Bishop in Westminster: it was as much a surprise to me as it was to Archbishop Smith.

The part-time post of Parish Secretary has been vacant since before Christmas and I have been giving careful thought as to how this post should be filled...

It is a time for us to rediscover the joy of the Gospel and to be “set free from sin, sorrow, inner emptiness and loneliness.” (Evangelii Gaudium 1) In this year’s Lenten message to the Church throughout the world, Pope Francis prays that, “...this Lenten season may find the whole Church ready to bear witness, to all those who live in material, moral and spiritual destitution, the Gospel message of the merciful love of God our Father, who is ready to embrace everyone in Christ. We can do this to the extent that we imitate Christ who became poor and enriched us by his poverty.”
Mgr Nicholas Hudson writes:
"I was pleased to be able to announce at all Masses last weekend that Archbishop Peter has appointed to the Parish a third Priest. He is Fr Thaddeus Nwokeji, a Diocesan Priest from Nigeria who has a Doctorate in Moral Theology from Rome; and has been working these last two years at St Simon's Parish, Putney. Fr Thaddeus will be working with us full-time from 15th March as a member of the Parish Pastoral Team. I know you will make him as welcome as you have made Fr Sam and me."
