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
