Welcome to our new priests, Canon Michael Cooke and Canon David Ryder

Dear Parishioners,

I am delighted that, some four months after my appointment as your new parish priest was announced, I am finally taking up this post. It is good to be here with you. As you also know, Canon David Ryder is your new assistant priest, resident at Ss Peter & Paul. Together we will support both communities and lead the process of amalgamating the parishes. An assistant priest is something of a luxury these days but is a necessity in this case because of the other duties I have as Vicar General and Moderator of the Curia (all of which I will explain in time). I am really looking forward to working with you in the years ahead.

Fr Michael

We are in need of volunteers in a number of areas but specifically we would like a volunteer with accountancy skills and also a few people to be responsible for counting the mass collections. Please see one of the priests or Paul Ashton
