About us

We are a small but growing community of Catholics in full visible communion with the Holy See and a part – a ‘Mission’ – of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham.   In short, we are Catholics with ‘Anglican previous’!   We are based at the Catholic Church of St John the Evangelist on St Richard’s Road in Deal, East Kent CT14 9LD.

The Deal Mission is served by the Reverend Father Christopher Lindlar, who as the Mission Pastor leads the Mission;  he is also Parochial Administrator of the Parish of Mongeham and Sandwich in the Archdiocese of Southwark.


Fr Christopher is available to visit anybody in need of spiritual help or counsel.   If you or someone you care for would like to talk to a priest in complete confidence, please do not hesitate to call 01304 374870.   Although the Sacraments are reserved to Catholics, he will gladly offer spiritual help to anyone, Catholic or non-Catholic alike. If someone you care for is close to death and would like to receive the ministry of a priest, please call 01304 374870 without delay;  Fr Christopher or another priest will come as soon as they can, night or day.
