Parishioner, Tony Brookes, said, “After 7 years without a resident priest we are greatly blessed by the arrival of Fr Santosh.”
Thank you Fr Brebner
Tony continued, “Both parishes are immensely grateful to Fr Terry Brebner who travelled from Rotherham for many years to celebrate weekend Masses for us. Fr Brebner’s input, along with hard work by the laity, kept both parishes going. We can now move forward with confidence with Fr Santosh.”
