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.

Year 2 visit the Church

On Wednesday Mrs Ebenebe and Mrs Beretta brought Year 2 to visit the Church. For many of the children Church is not part of their normal experience. I always love finding out what they notice and explaining things to them. They learned how to pronounce tab-er-nac-le and were intrigued at the five crosses and relics of the consecrated altar. Here they are gathered round the font enthusiastically asking and answering questions. A very joyful part of a priest's ministry.
