I am very grateful to Bishop Peter for incardinating me that is, for including me permanently in his diocese. From that moment I am no longer a “priest on loan”, but I became one of the priests of the diocese of Northampton. It is really a great honour for me. I am also very grateful for being appointed a parish priest for the Kettering Parish.

Pray for God’s blessing for Bishop Peter as he continues his ministry,
and for our bishop-elect, Canon David Oakley

O Lord, who for the feeding of your flock
have chosen your servant David as our bishop elect,
grant him, we pray,
a spirit of counsel and fortitude,
a spirit of knowledge and piety,
so that, by faithfully governing the people entrusted to him,
he may build up in the world the sacrament of the Church.
