As we all know, Fr John Usher completes his term as Parish Priest of St Patrick’s Parish Mortlake this week end.

The Archbishop has now appointed Fr.Tom Stevens as the new pastor of our parish.

For the past 3.5 years Fr Stevens has been an assistant priest at All Saints Parish Liverpool. During his stay in Liverpool Parish he did a great deal of work as a Chaplain to Liverpool Hospital. He was also the Administrator of Liverpool Parish when the Parish Priest was absent on sabbatical leave. He also holds other Archdiocesan roles.

His arrival at St Patrick’s Parish Mortlake this week will begin a new experience for us. We all extend to Fr Stevens a very warm welcome and an assurance of our support.
