I read on the NLM tonight that Fr Simon Henry, who I remember as a fellow student in my Ushaw days, has been appointed as parish priest of the first personal parish for the 1962 missal in England. Congratulations to Fr Simon. The parish is that of St Vincent, Toxteth (pictured above) in the diocese of Liverpool. This is a very important development for this country. It will be interesting to see how it fares. The Rise and Pray blog offers some thoughts on the news.
