St Andrews Thornton Heath Welcomes Fr. Len Tatt

I enjoin you all to open your hearts as we welcome our new Parish Priest, Fr. Len Tatt. We all have a task to give him wise counsel to enable him bridge any gap that may exist and create mutual environment for any possible change, where necessary, as he enriches our Community.

Bound together by Faith

"We cultivate a very small field for Christ, but we love it, knowing that God does not require great achievements but a heart that holds back nothing for self". -- St. Rose Philippine Duchesne

We have found the Messiah

"In the inexpressible joy of this eternal vision, human nature will possess what eye has not seen or ear heard, what man's heart has never conceived." -- Pope St. Leo the Great

In God You Are Never Alone

"Have no fear of moving into the unknown. Simply step out fearlessly knowing that I am with you, therefore no harm can befall you; all is very, very well. Do this in complete faith and confidence". -- Pope John Paul II

The Blessed Mother

“May the Mother of Jesus and our Mother, always smile on your spirit, obtaining for it, from her Most Holy Son, every heavenly blessing.” -- Saint Padre Pio

Have Faith; Pray Without Ceasing

"Pray with great confidence, with confidence based upon the goodness and infinite generosity of God and upon the promises of Jesus Christ. God is a spring of living water which flows unceasingly into the hearts of those who pray." -- St. Louis de Montfort
