Fr. Gregory

Welcome to our parish Father Nicholas, who will be living with me in our parish house for a few weeks.
For the past few years, Father Nicholas has been a parish priest in Slough.

We wish Father Nicholas a good time of rest and prayer in our parish before he takes up his new ministry in Nigeria.


Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals
From August 22 we are now able to arrange not only baptisms but also weddings and funerals in our church in Kettering.

 Baptism

I have received enquiries from couples who wish to have their baby baptised and I’m delighted to now be able to consider this in church.  Under current circumstances, baptisms can now take place, only on Saturdays, with a maximum of 30 people who
will need to socially distance in church unless from the same household.  This will be for one baby, one family and the organiser must arrive 15 minutes before the start to meet a steward who will advise on the required sanitising procedure that your party must adopt to clean any seats used or touched surfaces afterwards.  The wearing of face masks by all is requested.

The next preparation for baptism will be held on September 7 at 7.00 p.m. in St. Edward’s Church.

Contact the parish office on 01536 512497 or email parish@stedwardskettering.org.uk with initial enquiries.


Happy Birthday To Sister Aiden and Canon John!

We remember you in our prayers especially on these special days for you.
May God bless you and protect you every day.

I wish you all the best on behalf of the entire Parish of Saint Edward.

Fr Gregory
