News from Reading

Today there was a Churching (Blessing after childbirth) before Mass, and a baptism after, at St William of York, Reading, served by Fr Armand de Malleray of the Fraternity of St Peter.

Fr de Malleray also announced an important change in the Fraternity mission to England. Fr Simon Leworthy, a diocesan priest from Australia who has been working with the FSSP in Reading for about three years, is moving on to pastures new. In his place, Fr Matthew Goddard FSSP will be coming to Reading. He will arrive in August.

Fr Goddard will be the first English priest of the FSSP to be posted back to England. There are are more in the pipe-line, so to speak, but this in an historic development. I look forward to seeing him very much!
