Thank you

A big thank you to everyone from the parish for their kind best wishes, and generous gift, following my recent ordination to the diaconate at Palazzola, near Rome. I’ve received such a warm welcome since returning to the parish for the summer.
Below is a picture of the Southwark group who attended the ordination, including my co-ordained, The Rev. David Howell (from St Raphael’s Surbiton), Fr Matthew O’Gorman (ordained priest the following week, and resident in New Malden for August), and Fr Peter Edwards.
Please be assured of my prayers for you all.
(Special thanks to my confrere, Alex Balzanella, for the photographs.)

John Arnold (Bishop of Salford), Fr Matthew O’Gorman (Asst. Priest-elect of Purley), The Rev. Phil Andrews (St Joseph, New Malden), Mr Francis Murphy (Seminarian, parish of St Thomas More, Dulwich), Fr Peter Edwards (PP, St Joseph, New Malden)
