...about the Church and the Catholic Faith

On this section of the website we will try to offer guidance and some sensible answers to questions that we are asked. However, these are links to external websites, and in some cases, we may not necessarily agree with what the article is saying. However, they can be of interest or provide information. As always, the priests at St. Thomas the Apostle are available to talk to should you need help, assistance or answers to questions. 

There are already many places on the Web where Catholic answers are given - on such sites as Catholic Answers for example!

Child Protection Policy

Among its other activities, the Parish provides spiritual, catechetical and pastoral care and activities for children and young people. The Parish is committed to protecting and safeguarding children and young people. In accordance with recommendations from the Archdiocese of Southwark and the first report of the Nolan Committee, the Parish drew up its own Child Protection Policy as an "early adopter" of the Church's recommended procedures.

Since that time, the Final Report of the Nolan Committee has been issued and COPCA, the Catholic Office for the Protection of Children and Vulnerable Adults has been set up by the Bishops of England and Wales.

In addition, the Archdiocese of Southwark's Child Protection Team has been established. Fr John Kavanagh is the Archbishop's Representative for Child Protection issues and Helen Sheppard is the Diocesan Child Protection Officer.

The parish of St Thomas the Apostle, Nunhead, is committed to working with the Archdiocese of Southwark's Child Protection Team and with COPCA.

The Diocean Child Protection Team has now issued an interim Child Protection Policy for the whole diocese while a National Policy is being framed. The parish accepts this policy and is updating its own Child Protection Policy accordingly.


Basic Catholic Information

There is a lot of good Catholic information on the internet. This section offers a few good places to start.

What do Catholics believe?
Catholic Answers - straightforward and readable articles. They also do radio broadcasts that you can listen to on your computer or on your mp3 player.

EWTN - Eternal Word Television Network, another good, popular website. It has articles, television and radio programmes that are accessible to anyone free of charge. (You can watch EWTN in England if you have SKY - it is on channel 769.)

The Catechism of the Catholic Church is a comprehensive but readable summary of the Catholic faith, produced under Pope John Paul II.

New Advent - a website with the entire text of the Catholic Encyclopedia. This was produced in 1917 and was put on the internet by voluntary workers who scanned or typed in the entire text. It remains an excellent work of reference.

How do I become a Catholic?
A good plac to start is at the Archdiocese of Southwark's website page entitled
The Journey of Faith, The Rite of Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
