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.

Autumn Fayre

A busy day today - our annual Autumn Fayre took place after much preparation by co-ordinating committee Anne Bulpin, Margretta Holmes, Eileen Conn and other supportive parishioners.

As well as the usual stalls and draw, a young group of Irish dancing students called Celtic Rhythm from our deanery secondary school, St Anselm's, gave a performance before the Grand Draw.

It was a most enjoyable afternoon and, by the end of the day, about £1,500 had been raised which will all go towards our Maintenance and Development Fund. Some unsold items will be available for sale tomorrow after Mass, so we hope the total will rise.
