About me

Gender Male
Introduction I was born in St Albans in 1961; twenty years later while studying Biology I heard and responded to a call from God. I trained for the Priesthood at the English College, Valladolid, Spain, and was ordained Catholic Priest in 1988. I have worked in various parishes in the Diocese of Leeds, UK, also in school, hospital and prison chaplaincies. I gained a Licentiate in 2000 from the John Paul II Institute in Valencia, Spain, and have been involved in the youth evangelisation organisation "Youth 2000", being Chaplain to the Mission Team and develping their Formation Courses. I am a member of the St John Vianney Society, based in Ars, France, which seeks the renewal of the Diocesan Priesthood through fraternity. I was the first full-time chaplain to Campion College, Australia.I then worked at the Seminary of the Good Shepherd in Sydney as a spiritual director. My present mission is in the parish of St Ignatius at Ossett, near Wakefield in Yorkshire.
