Fr Liam Hayes is our newly appointed parish priest and will be joining us this September 2022. Fr Liam, who was born in London and ordained for our Diocese of Brentwood in 1999, has served as a priest in the parishes of Hornchurch, Colchester, Walthamstow and Manor Park.
Liam has also worked with Cafod for over sixteen years during this time as a theology adviser. This has seen him accompany and work with theologians, volunteers and colleagues across each of the dioceses of England and Wales and travel to many of Cafod’s partners in Africa, Asia and South America.
Liam is currently the Director of the Centre for Ecclesial Ethics at the Margaret Beaufort Institute of Theology in Cambridge and will continue in this role when he joins us this autumn. In his leisure time Liam enjoys cycling, swimming and cooking – and also playing the piano badly!
