I would like to thank everyone for their kindness, generosity and encouragement as I returned home for my first Mass. All the goodness and generosity I’ve experienced demonstrates two things. Firstly, how much the people love the priesthood. Secondly, it demonstrates how a priest shares in the priesthood of Jesus Christ. This is why it’s so beautiful and impressive.
Please continue to pray for me as I venture out into the Lord’s harvest and take up my new appointment in Portsmouth Cathedral and please pray for more vocations to the priesthood!
We are grateful to the Catenians who kindly supplied the wine and drinks for the celebration in the Hall and also to the UCM for looking after the refreshments and to everyone who brought along cakes.
