Dear loving parishioners,

As I have announced, I am moving to Preston on 22nd April

support especially in the difficult moments of my life. I thank and praise God together with you for guiding me all these 17 months. Wherever I will be, I assure you my prayers. You are all welcome to St. Ignatius Church, Preston where I am moving to.
