Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Since my move to Alnwick I have received a

wonderfully warm welcome from you all.

I look forward to getting to know more of you in the coming New Year.

I am sure the Lord will continue to bless our communities just as we have been

blessed and sustained us in the last difficult months due to the pandemic.

I have been so touched by everyone's thoughtfulness, kindness and practical help.

I feel at home here already! When the Government Restrictions are lifted

I look forward to working with you on new and renewed pastoral initiatives. 

May God Bless you and your families.

Father Stephen.
