I am very pleased to tell you that Canon Peter Stodart is our new neighbour and resident. Fr Peter has moved into 48a Thanet Road and looks forward to spending his retirement from active ministry here in Bexley. Please give him a warm welcome when you see him. He will enjoy celebrating mass with us, but after his many years of service in the diocese, he deserves a rest and freedom from ANY parish duties. He and I have been friends for many years and now I get to be his landlord! (- on your behalf, of course.) We also welcome Fr Peter’s family, here this weekend. God Bless,
