Holy Cross and Saint Helen Catholic Church

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

Today the Archbishop has announced a number of appointments, including that from 1 July I will be chaplain to Maryton Carmel in Liverpool. Fr Kevan O’Brien will succeed me as parish priest at Holy Cross. I never thought that I would be asked to move after such a short time as your parish priest, but I am grateful to the Archbishop for the trust and confidence he has placed in me in asking me to go to Carmel. I’m really happy to go there and am looking forward to it as I have a great love for monastic life, but it will be hard to leave Holy Cross. I am very glad that Fr Kevan, who you will have come to know on his many visits to say Mass, will be succeeding me. I can think of no one better to be your parish priest at this time.

With the assurance of my continuing prayers for the next month and beyond,

Fr Jonathan
