St Michael Sonning Common
Walking Together
(Preparation for Bishops' Synod 2023)

We have an opportunity to respond to Pope Francis's request for us to come together and by listening to one another assist him and the bishops in discerning: 'What is the Holy Spirit saying to our Church today?' Every Catholic is encouraged to participate since every contributon is important to this process of discernment.

Your are invited to join a face-to-face meeting in the parish hall at either:
10am, Monday 17th January.
7pm, Wednesday 19th January.
For those who are still shielding or unable to get out an online Zoom meeting will take place at:
7pm, Monday 17th January. For the Zoom access code please email deacon Brian: dcn.brian.theobald@rcaob.org.uk

If more time is required a second set of meetings will be held two weeks later.

St Michael Catholic Church, Sonning Common is situated in South Oxfordshire and is part of the Archdiocese of Birmingham. As well as Sonning Common, the parish includes Emmer Green, Caversham Park Village in North Reading and a number of smaller South Oxfordshire villages including Kidmore End, Rotherfield Peppard and Stoke Row.


The aim of our website is two-fold:

  • To be a first point of contact and welcome for people searching for a Catholic church in this area.
  • To keep current members of the parish community informed of parish activities.
