Welcome to the Weybridge Deanery Website
The Weybridge Deanery is the umbrella group for the Catholic parishes in North West Surrey. We are part of the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton.
We believe that we need to work increasingly close together. Where possible events in one parish will be open to other parishes in the deanery.
If you would like to add anything to the website please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The Word Who Is Life: As you may have read in the recent Weybridge Deanery Newsletter, Bishop Richard has held meetings around the diocese in recent weeks to look at the future of our Mission and Ministry. He asked all of us to reflect on a series of questions and these have now been formatted into a simple questionnaire https://www.surveymonkey.co. uk/r/T7S53DZ.
We also invite you to discuss it at home, to share it with friends, to discuss it in parish groups and to encourage each other to take part in this important step in formulating a response for Bishop Richard ahead of his return visit on January 29, when he wants to hear our vision for the way ahead.

Pope Francis calls us to “Missionary Discipleship”
As Catholics we want to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with the unchurched and those who have not yet had the opportunity to meet God. Yes attending mass and receiving the sacraments is important but it is only through our actions that we will ultimately have the chance to meet our heavenly father.
