My Photo

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.

New School Servers

We have had a go at getting some of the pupils to volunteer to serve Mass with lunch time practices. Mrs Ebenebe, the primary school's RE co-ordinator gave them suitable encouragement and things have got going! We have had two lunch time practices. Two of the youngsters are already regular servers but for the rest today was only their second time serving, the first being last Friday, Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. In spite of their lack of experience, all was accomplished with great dignity, reverence and aplomb! So a big 'well done' and 'pluck up courage to serve at the Sunday Mass. You can do it!'
