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.

Day for Life Baptism

It was lovely to celebrate Day for Life with the birth into the new life of grace in Christ of Thomas James Fitzroy Leonard during the parish morning Mass. Here we have Thomas with his grandmother Evelyn and mother Elizabeth, Evelyn's daughter.

And here's the group photo after Mass: L to R yours truly, mum Elizabeth, grandparents Evelyn and husband Peter Leonard, godmother Catarina Beresford holding Thomas, godfather Guy Beresford and godmother Jada.

Thomas has usually made his presence in church known by his vocal skills, but today he was remarkably quiet, there being only a hint of a cry as the water was being poured.
