Catholic Church respond to death of teenager in Malaysia who attended church in London


15 year old Nora Quoirin attended St Bede’s Catholic Church in Clapham Park.

The priest Father Marcus Holden asked for prayers for the family last week and the church held vigils and opportunities for members to come in and pray throughout the week after she went missing on Sunday 4th August. 

They will now host a public mass on Thursday at 8pm. 



The Archdiocese of Southwark said in a statement: “It is with great sadness that we received the news today of the discovery of the body of Nora Quoirin, who disappeared whilst on holiday with her family in Malaysia.

“Little can take away the desolation that is experienced at the loss of a loved one. However, at this most painful of times the Catholic community wishes to extend its prayerful support to Nora’s family in heartfelt love and compassion: we walk alongside them as they grieve her loss.

“Mindful of their sadness, we also pray for the comfort of those who have been involved in the search for Nora, the parishioners of St Bede’s RC Church, Clapham Park, where the family attend Mass, as well as school friends and staff.

“God is in all things and his grace is with us in all circumstances. We commend Nora to God’s tender care, asking him also to pour out peace, consolation and healing on those that mourn her this day.

“We respectfully ask that the family and friends of Nora are granted privacy at this time.”
