I am delighted to have been appointed by Bishop Alan as your new Parish Priest and I am very much looking forward to joining you later this month.
I especially look forward to getting to know you, your families and our wider community in the months and years ahead as we journey together as the pilgrim People of God.
I know that I have much to learn from you in the months to come, and I have much that I wish to share – but the beginning of this shared journey will have to wait a few more weeks until I arrive for my first weekend on Saturday 24th / Sunday 25th September, that will permit me to keep some prior commitments.
Until then I shall be keeping you in prayer and ask that you keep me in your prayers as I prepare to join you for the adventure that lies ahead as disciples of the Risen Lord.
With warm wishes
Fr Liam Hayes
