Arrangements for the New Year

Fr Bede and Fr Anselm were invited to a meeting with the Bishop. He did not change his mind, and so we will depart at the end of the year. He told us of his plans for the parishes. The current unit of four parishes is to be split once again.

Wells & Cheddar:
Cheddar and Wells will have their own parish priest, who will be resident in the presbytery in Wells. Your new parish priest will be Fr Tony Pazhayakalam CST. He hails from Kerala in India, and is a member of the Little Flower Congregation. (You can find out more about his Order at www.cstfathersindia.com) We know you will make him very welcome. At the moment he is based in Cheltenham, and he intends to arrive at the end of the year.

Shepton Mallet & Glastonbury:
Shepton Mallet & Glastonbury will not have a resident priest at this time, but the Bishop intends that they will in the future. In the meantime the Bishop will be organising supply priests, to ensure that there will be Mass every Sunday for both parishes.

Please continue to pray for us, as we will for you.

Leaving collection for Fr Anselm & Fr Bede

If you would like to contribute to a leaving collection for Fr Anselm & Fr Bede, there are envelopes provided at all of the parishes. Just put them in with the normal collection or give them to one of us. Please keep us in your prayers.
