Canon Patrick Hartnett at leaving Mass

The parish held a special Mass on Friday evening which was followed by a party and was well attended by parishioners.

During the homily, Canon Pat reflected on his time in the parish. The great successes and achievements that occurred during this time, in particular, the building of our parish church.

He talked about the privilege of sharing in the faith journey of many parishioners, whether that be in sacramental celebrations including Baptism and First communion but also in the daily sharing of life in the faith.

He talked about feeling sad at leaving the parish in Ingleby Barwick but also looking forward to the new challenge in a new parish.

The parish will now be lead by Canon Alan Sheridan who returns for a second time to the parish.
