Welcome Fr Sean Crawley

Fr Sean Crawley joined us from the Parish of St John Mary Vianney in North Leeds, in early September 2017,  where had been Assistant Curate for the last two years.  He trained for 7 years for the priesthood at the Venerable English College in Rome and before that at the Royal English College in Valladolid and was ordained to the sacred priesthood on 25 July 2015.  He is a native of Leeds. He has already received a very warm welcome from parishioners of both churches and we all look forward to working with him for a very long time to come.
