What is Platea?
Over fifty years ago, the parish’s guild of St Francis de Sales published ‘Platea’, a parish magazine to 'inform and educate' the parish. In 2016, the decision was made to resurrect 'Platea' to highlight the parish and events about to take place; to educate parishioners on things of Catholic and local interest; to encourage greater engagement with Scripture and the Catholic Faith; and to celebrate the work and worship of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, Herne Bay. Various articles from the magazine will appear on this page, including some that didn't make the final print edition.
Copies are hand-delivered to every address on the parish lists. If you don't get a copy but should, please get in touch. Further copies will be available from the parish repository or from the parish office.
