For nine years up till July 2010, I was parish priest at St Simon Stock Catholic Church, South Ashford, Kent, England. From July 2010 until June 2011 I was Associate Pastor at St Peter's Cathedral, Marquette, Michigan USA and then Pastor at St Anthony Parish, Gwinn, MI until October 2013. I then transferred to the Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon to serve as Director of the Tribunal. And that's what I am currently doing. Since February 2015 I have also been serving as Pastor at St Stephen Parish, South East Portland. I miss "da UP" (Upper Peninsula of Michigan) but love being here in the Pacific North West.

Baptism of Harriet Jean Moore

Congratulations to Eric and Annelise Moore on the baptism of their third child, Harriet Jean, today. Three years ago on 31st October, I baptised their second child Alice, and their first-born son Sam was baptised at St Francis' Church, Maidstone. Eric and Annelise are, of course, one of the couples who submitted the wonderfully positive feedback on the baptism preparation course which I have previously posted. Annelise's father and mother, together with other family members, had travelled from France for the occasion. Eric's mother was also present. As is almost customary in this parish, the baptism took place during the 10.00am Mass in the presence of the parish community, and children were invited to gather round the font for the anointings and the baptism itself. So it's a great catechetical opportunity too. Our next baptism, that of Conor Alecks, is scheduled for the feast of Christ the King in four weeks time.
