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.

Welcome to Father Francis Amuh

Father comes from Ghana and will be staying here for a few weeks covering for me while I am on holiday. He has been a priest for about 30 years and is an expert in Liturgy, having studied at the Pontifical University, St Patrick's College, Maynooth in Ireland. He is a regular visitor to the UK, particularly the London area, but this is his first experience of Kent! He seems to have enjoyed his first Sunday in the parish, which included lunch at one of our parishioners'. He's pictured above after our evening Mass today. I'm sure our parishioners will make him very welcome.
