The Bishop is delighted to announce that Father Lee Bennett, presently serving in the Brentwood Diocese, has accepted his invitation to become priest in charge (Parochial Administrator) of the Parishes of SS Peter & Paul, Newport and SS Thomas Aquinas & Stephen Harding, Market Drayton. The Bishop hopes the appointment will bring much needed stability to the Catholic communities in Market Drayton and Newport. Father Lee Bennett is a priest of the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham established in the Church for former members of the Anglican Communion retaining elements of the Anglican patrimony. He is married to Helen a schoolteacher and was ordained a Catholic priest in 2011 following more than a decade of Anglican ministry. At the beginning of September, he will take residence at the Presbytery in Market Drayton as Father Anthony Wild's continues his convalescence. Please pray for Father Lee Bennett as he begins his service in the Diocese, and for Father Anthony Wild's continued recovery.
