All change but not doom and gloom...for a change

There have been a couple of priestly moves within the Diocese that have been a cause for rather more joy than we are used to! It makes me feel incredibly hopeful for the future.

Fr Gerard Hatton has been the most amazing supporter of the EF in the parish of Our Lady of Ransom, Eastbourne. When we heard he was moving, we were not only extremely sad to lose him, but automatically thought that was The End of our wonderful couple of years with a regular monthly Masses, as well as Feast Days, and extras.

We hoped that in Fr Gerard's new parish, there would be great opportunities for introducing the EF the Mass there, and indeed, starting next week, there will be a Mass at St Hugh of Lincoln, 95 Victoria Road, Knap Hill, GU 21 2AA every Thursday evening at 7.00 pm.

In Eastbourne, far from being without, we are able to continue with the 2nd Sunday Mass thanks to the arrival of two priests, both of whom are willing and able so say the EF. Fr Tristan Cranfield, who has been appointed as Fr Gerard's successor at OLR, and Fr Thomas Mason has joined the Eastbourne Ordinariate parish of Christ the King, Langney.

So a huge thank you to Fr Gerard, we will miss you, St Hugh's is very lucky to have you! And a huge thank you and welcome to Fr Tristan and Fr Thomas.
