Hello and welcome to the website of St Michael’s Catholic Church in Ashtead.

Canon Anthony Whale, Parish Priest

Father Tony

St Michael’s is a happy community with a lot happening, on a lot of fronts, all the time. Around this website you will find all the information you need to come and join us in whatever way you please. You will certainly be made most welcome.

Our parish is part of the Catholic Diocese of Arundel and Brighton. But we see ourselves as a vital part of the wider world community. ‘Vital’, because we have a God given responsibility to our neighbours and particularly to our neighbours who are less fortunate than we are. At St Michael’s, this is a central part of the philosophy which underpins our parish life.

And so I say again, welcome to St Michael’s. Please have a look around and if you like even a small part of what you see, then say hello to one of our welcomers or a member of our parish pastoral team or to me, Father Tony Whale. We’ll be delighted to meet you and to make you feel at home and to listen to your ideas.

God bless you,

Father Tony
