A Welcome from the Dean

Father Jeff Cridland

Dean and Parish Priest of Saint Finbarr's, Aylesham

On behalf of the Clergy and Laity within the Roman Catholic Dover Deanery, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all visitors to our website.

Our Deanery stretches from the south to east of Kent, covering the Romney Marsh through to Sandwich and in-land as far as Aylesham near Canterbury. We hope this website will aid the spiritual life of the Church in this, our part of the Diocese of Southwark.

As a visitor to this website you can find information and Mass times for any of our eight Parishes. You can also view our five Primary Schools and one Secondary School. Most importantly, the whole Catholic community can share details of events taking place, opening up to Parishioners across the Deanery.

If you have any suggestions on how we can improve this website or have an event you would like to share, please let us know using the 'Contact Us' link above.

Thank you for visiting.
