See our Parish Mission page for all the details, and keep an eye on it as it is updated.

It is with great sadness that we convey the news that Canon Francis Moran passed away yesterday, Tuesday 29 January, in the presbytery of St. Mary Magdalene Mortlake.
He was the curate here at St. Bartholomew’s from 1993-97.
Francis Moran was born in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales in 1961 as part of a large family. In 1989 after Seminary and getting his degree at the University of Kent at Canterbury he was ordained to the Priesthood at St Cecilia’s North Cheam and went on to be Assistant Priest at Ss. Henry & Elizabeth Sheerness and then here at St. Bartholomew’s Norbury before a short time as Administrator of St James the Great in Peckham Rye. He was then appointed Parish Priest at St Catherine’s Chessington during which time he studied for an MA in Contemporary Catholic Theology at Heythrop College.
In early 2004 the Archbishop moved him to St Andrew’s Thornton Heath before moving him again to
St. Mary Magdalene Mortlake in 2017.
We pray for the safe and happy repose of his soul.
May he rest in peace.
