On the retirement of Fr Brian Murphy, we welcomed Fr Gerard to our Parish. He has made a lovely impression on the children in school, and he is getting to know his family parishioners.
Prior to the Coronavirus outbreak, Fr Gerard visited our school often to engage with the children and we enjoyed a special Mass on Ash Wednesday.
Fr Gerard continues to carry out his work reaching out to our children by sending friendly videos for our classes to watch in school.
Congratulations to our Parish Priest, Father Brian Murphy, who celebrated his 50th Jubilee on the Feast of Ss Peter and Paul. A special Mass at Church was held and it was full of Father Brian's friends, family, parishioners, and staff, governors and children of our school. Thank you Father Brian for your dedication to the Priesthood.
