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.

Folkestone Deanery Youth Evening

Eleven of our young parishioners travelled to Folkestone last night to take part in a youth evening organised by Father Roger Nesbitt, parish priest of Folkestone attended by a large group from the parish of Folkestone itself, as well as some from Hythe and Deal, and a large group from New Addington with their parish priest, my brother, Fr Stephen Boyle.

Sister Roseann Reddy, to whom I have referred on my own blog, gave a talk to the youngsters on her work as a Sister of the Gospel of Life in a rather packed sitting room. The Sisters have been doing their work for ten years in which time they have dealt with 2,222 mothers and about 70 babies have been saved through their work.

In the photo, two of our young parishioners chat with Sr Roseann.
