Clergy - past and present

We have been served by a number of priests since the parish was created in 1959. We give thanks to God for their ministry and hard work. In addition, we recall with gratitude the huge contribution to the life of the Church locally made by the Sisters of Mercy (who founded and for many years ran St. Philip Howard School) and the St. John of God priests and brothers who have cared for so many with special needs. There have been other priests who have helped out in the parish over the years, but our parish priests have been :
