This week sees the departure of Father Manny, as he leaves to become Parish Priest of Our Lady of Furness in Barrow-in-Furness. Father Manny has been our priest for a relatively short period of time – two and a half years – but he is held in the highest regard by all parishioners. We give him our heartfelt thanks and wish him every blessing in his new appointment.
We welcome Father Andrew Broster as our new Parish Priest. Father Broster joins us from the Parish of Our Lady and St Patrick, Maryport. Father Broster was ordained in 1997 and has served in five parishes across the diocese. We extend the warmest of welcomes to Father Broster, and wish him great happiness and fulfillment at The Holy Cross parish.
