Congratulations


To Fr Andrew on his Ordination to the Sacred Priesthood  which took place on Wednesday 24th June.


Ordained by Bishop Andrew in the presence  of family and friends this was an occasion which we at St Francis are exceptionally proud of.


We pray for Fr Andrew as he begins his ministry and ask everyone to join us in wishing him well and for God's blessing on his future work.


We also raised £218 for the Additional Curates Society - so thank you!
