Father Stephen Hill replaces Msgr Entwistlr as Parish Priest

The Record has printed a full double page article to mark the occasion.   The Record has been and continues to be an enthusiastic supporter of the Ordinariate and we thank them for their support and generosity.

Part of what Mngr Harry had to say is below; and with which I concur:

Change always creates nervousness because it heralds an uncertain future. The story of Scripture is one of God leading people through change and their resistance to it. Yet the changes led to their salvation. And if enough people had not
embraced the changes, who knows whether our story of salvation would not have been profoundly different.

So what can I say? What are some of the internal changes we
are challenged to make? Firstly, you must become a true
community and not a group or club. That is, you must have a common unity in the Gospel and the teachings of the Church and the faith of the Church.

You must be prayerful, welcoming and supportive of those who
come and see what sort of community we are. Our heritage and Anglican ways are important to us, but some we must get rid of or let go of. We must stop being religious consumers and start being missionary providers.
