When I was licensed here, I was licensed as Priest in Charge in these parishes.  It is a technical, but important distinction.  I am not the incumbent, though for all practical purposes I am treated by the Diocese and constitution…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As some of us travelled yesterday to witness a new dawn breaking for the cathedral and for Bro Deiniol in Bangor, what will the spring sunshine bring to Bangor and in Kathy’s Ministry we wonder?  I noticed the brightness of…
