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.

Aid to the Church in Need

Today we welcomed John Grieg from Aid to the Church in Need. He set up his stall and gave a brief talk at the end of Mass to introduce the parish Lenten Appeal that will be made in support of the work of ACN. Many bishops in troubled parts of the world depend on ACN's help to train seminarians and provide formation for religious brothers and sisters. The Church is being persecuted in many places, not least in China.
