FROM THE NEW PARISH PRIEST It is wonderful to have arrived in the Parish and I am now beginning to settle into the Presbytery and to find my way around Bletchley.  A sincere thank you for the warm welcome I have received from so many of you already.  Please be patient with me as I begin to put new names to new faces and commit them to memory; this may take me some time!  Please be assured that for the foreseeable future the life of the Parish will continue as normal as together we travel as a pilgrim people through the great seasons of the Church’s year.  I am deeply grateful for all the help and support that so many of you give to the life of our Parish community.

May God bless us in our various ministries,

Father Christopher Perry
