Welcome to our Parish
Welcome to the Parish Website for the Crawley Catholic Parish, which is made up of six communities across the town. On any Sunday over 1,500 people gather together to celebrate Mass - the source and summit of all we do.
Sunday 17th November - Parish Memorial Service & Blessing of Friary Graves at 3.00 pm
Registration for the Sacrament of Confirmation
Confirmation is one of the seven Sacraments of the Catholic Church. It is one of the three Sacraments of initiation into the Catholic Church, the other two being Baptism and Holy Communion. Confirmation is the Sacrament by which Catholics receive a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Through Confirmation, the Holy Spirit gives them the increased ability to practise their Catholic faith in every aspect of their lives and to witness Christ in every situation.
We therefore call on all our young ones to use this opportunity and register for the preparation leading to the reception of this Sacrament come 2020.
Applications are now open until 17th November 2019. Please register online:
Please note, this Sacramental programme is open to those in School Years 10, 11 and 12 (age 14-17)
