On Sunday 6th May, the parish bade a sad farewell to Father Sami Helewa who has been with us for four years whilst completing his doctorate at Edinburgh University.

A tea party, with music, poetry, singing and dancing from parishioners young and old was followed by a presentation of gifts to Father Sami.

Father Sami returns to Canada this week, but will shortly be moving again to Ghana where he will do his Jesuit tertianship.
