St Thomas More’s Parish, Parson Cross, Sheffield said a fond farewell to Fr Martin Trask on Saturday, 2 March, after 18 and a half years as Parish Priest, as he moved on to new parishes in Rotherham.  Fr Martin arrived at St Thomas More’s in the Autumn of 2000, succeeding Fr Bernard Bedford.

At his final weekend Mass, Fr Martin was presented with flowers and cards from the Children’s Liturgy groups, as well as a plaque commemorating his time at St Thomas More’s, a watch and a cash gift from the congregation.



Thank you Fr Martin for all your help during your time at St Thomas More’s and best wishes as you move on to your new parishes.

As Fr Martin left St Thomas More he was welcomed into the parishes of St Joseph, Wath-upon-Dearne and St Joseph, Rawmarsh.
