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

The offering for the Mass can be sent to the parish account using the details in the Offertory Collection section below.
In light of the news from the Government and guidelines received from the Bishops Conference, social distancing measures will be removed from the Church as of Monday 19th July, HOWEVER, masks and hand sanitisation MUST still be observed. As everyone will still be wearing masks, congregational singing is now permitted.
Please note when attending Mass everyone MUST:
- Complete an NHS Track & Trace card each time you attend either Mass. You can print this out at Home (click here to download) and bring it with you or complete one at the door of the Church, or use the QR Code on the poster in the lobby.
- Wear a face mask during Mass.
- Sanitise Hands on entry and exit to the Church.
At this difficult time, you can continue to support our parish mission and ministry, by donating your offertory using online methods, such as Direct Payments, Standing Orders, and via the diocesan JustGiving page. The details to set up Direct Payment and Standing Orders can be obtained from the parish office.
Please do let us know if you are starting a Direct Payment or Standing Order by emailing Father Luke at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are a taxpayer and can do Gift Aid, please let us know and we will send you a form. It’s very simple, private, secure, and doesn’t cost you a penny. However, for every £1 you donate to the Church we can claim 20p back from the Tax Man.
Use of the Hall
In consultation with the Finance Committee via email, the parish secretary and Praetorium (our hall booking managers), I have decided the hall will not be used for general social functions for the time being. It can be used for Church liturgy, such as First Holy Communion and Confirmation. It may also be used for small receptions of a few hours, related to a Marriage or Baptism being undertaken in the Church, but there MUST BE a designated person responsible for undertaking COVID requirements.
