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.

The best gift a parishioner could offer

On my return from Wonersh today, I found a Mass request for the following intention: Thanksgiving and for Welfare of Our Parish Priest, with an offering too! Thank you kind parishioner. I could find out who you are as your Gift Aid number is on the envelope, but I prefer not to check up on who's giving what - I leave that up to Mark Madsen, our Gift Aid co-ordinator. But your kind thought has buoyed me up no end. God bless you.
