The Society is delighted to announce that the second half of its National Missioner role is going to be undertaken by Fr Chris Brading SSC. Fr Chris will work alongside the existing Missioner, Fr David D'Silva, in this important role. Both Fr Chris and Fr David will be serving as part-time parish priests alongside being part-time Missioner. Fr Chris has been the parish priest of St Richard, Haywards Heath for the last five years and will be moving within the Diocese of Chichester to become the parish priest of St Mary Our Lady, Sidlesham in the summer.

 

Bishop Will Hazlewood, The Society's lead on mission, commented: "I'm thrilled that Fr Chris has discerned a call to work alongside Fr David in this new role, which we are discovering carries with it lots of possibilities and ideas for our movement. We're particularly pleased with how well the Catholic Mission Network is developing, harnessing not only the resources contained in Fr James Mallon's book Divine Renovation but also the wisdom and experience of our parish priests."

 

Fr Chris commented: "I'm excited at the prospect of this next stage in my ordained ministry. I look forward to utilising my skills and expertise in marketing and communications to support mission and evangelism in Society parishes."

 

The Society records its gratitude to the Archbishops' Council for funding this new initiative.

The Society is delighted to announce the appointment of its first National Missioner. Fr David D'Silva SSC, Priest-in-Charge of St. Leonard's, Scawsby with St. Luke's Scawthorpe, will undertake the role part-time alongside his parochial duties. The Society will appoint a suitable individual in due course to undertake the other half of the Missioner role.

 

Bishop Philip North, The Society's lead on mission, commented: "I'm delighted that Fr David has agreed to take on this exciting new role, which will refresh our approach to mission across all Society parishes. His immediate priority will be to establish and develop a Catholic mission network across the country to take forward the excellent ideas on mission put forward in Fr James Mallon's book Divine Renovation."

 

Fr David commented: "I cannot wait to begin working with Society parishes to find new ways to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ boldly and freshly. I know the parishes hold the treasure house of faith which we have inherited dear to them and I relish working with them to pass on that faith on to new Christians."

 

The Society records its gratitude to the Archbishops' Council for funding this new initiative.
