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.

Altar Servers Reunion

This afternoon the parish was host to servers and other young people from the parishes of Orpington, New Addington and Gravesend, as well as our own. Some 40 youngsters attended. My brother Fr Stephen came with his group from New Addingon. Stephen is also the Diocesean Director to the Guild of St Stephen. Fr James Clark came with his group from Gravesend. As well as being assistant priest there he is also on the diocesan Vocations Promotion team. I gave an input on Salvation History using the excellent Evangelium catechetical resource, together with a sheet of questions and points for discussion. There was plenty of time for games. The day ended with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament during which confessions were heard, and Mass at 6pm.

Sorry: no pics. Just too busy.

Thanks to all parishioners who helped and to all who turned up. See you at the next one!
