Fr Kevin Robinson silver jubilee

This evening, Fr Kevin Robinson celebrated Mass at Our Lady of the Rosary to mark the 25th anniversary of his ordination to the Anglican priesthood. Fr Robinson has been received into the Catholic Church and regularly supplies at Blackfen.

We welcomed Fr Kevin's family and many friends, and the Union of Catholic Mothers laid on a lovely reception after Mass.

Here you can see Fr Kevin with some of his former parishioners from St Barnabas Church of England parish in Downham:
