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.

Divine Mercy Day Baptism

Belated congratulations to Andrew and Jane on the baptism of their daughter Sophie on 30th March, Second Sunday of Easter and Divine Mercy Sunday. The name 'Sophie' of course refers to Christ as the Wisdom of God (Sofia in Greek). On Divine Mercy Sunday, we read in the Gospel of Jesus breathing upon the apostles bidding them receive the Holy Spirit. We pray that Sophie may be blessed with a rich indwelling of God's wisdom in her soul.
