Father Andy was initially appointed by Bishop Peter as Priest-in-Charge of our Parish from September 2012 in place of Fr David Barrett. Following a prolonged period of sick leave, Fr David decided to stand down as Parish Priest in December 2012. Bishop Peter subsequently appointed Fr Andy Richardson as our new Parish Priest.

Since his ordination to the priesthood in June 2008, Father Andy has served as the Assistant Priest in St Edward’s Parish, Kettering.

Fr Simon has recently moved into the Presbytery which he will use as his base in the Diocese. Fr Simon’s priestly commitments will remain with the Sion Community, but it will be nice to have him around in the parish from time to time.
