May I, on behalf of the people of St. Margaret Clitherow Dulwich Wood Park, welcome you to our website.
We are a parish community in South East London with many nationalities represented within our faith family. We hope this website gives you a flavour of our parish. If you are new to the area, we’d be delighted to have you visit.
For those who wish to find out more about the sacramental life of the Church, then please peruse the relevant pages on our site. We also have some downloads (at the foot of the page) about the various administration forms for Baptism, First Holy Communion, Confirmation and so on.
Thank you and God Bless
Fr Luke Marappillil

A Christian Voice in Your Home
Tired of listening to The Archers or endless updates on energy prices on your journey home? Bored of having incessantly samey music on in the background whilst you cook? Finding it difficult to pray? What we listen to casually can easily wear us down and depress our spirit.
However, it might just be able to uplift us too, thanks to Radio Maria, a Catholic radio station that has recently set up a new studio in London. The 24hr broadcast includes talk shows about life as a Catholic, daily catechesis, live prayer, a truly delightful and eclectic selection of music – and much much more!
Whether you find encouragement praying with others on-air or tuning into a conversation between the faithful and interesting guests who can bring you new insights and help you feel less alone in your faith, Radio Maria is an invaluable Christian voice wherever you may be.
What’s more, you can get involved! It is a thoroughly local radio station, relying on volunteers and often bringing the broadcast to parish churches. Mining the rich trove of wisdom of our Christian heritage, Radio Maria knits England’s faithful together in a shared love of God and neighbour. What’s not to love?
Available on DAB+ radio in Greater London (Radio Maria England), the Radio Maria Play app for smartphones and tablets, the live-player on www.radiomariaengland.uk and the Amazon Alexa device. Podcasts are available through Anchor, Spotify, Google and other podcast providers. Get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0300 302 1251.
Power, Treason and Plot in Tudor England:
Margaret Clitherow an Elizabethan Saint
For those interested in the life and times surrounding Margaret Clitherow, there is a new book available by historian Tony Morgan.
Tony is an Associate Professor at the University of Leeds, and having lived near York for 30 years, is fascinated by the city’s history. He’s written three historical novels and delivers historical talks about two of York’s most famous former residents, Guy Fawkes and Margaret Clitherow.
