Bishop Richard has held meetings around the diocese in the last couple of months to look at the future of our Mission and Ministry. He asked all of us to reflect on a series of questions and respond to a questionnaire. The results of the questionnaire were shared at a meeting on Monday evening. They can be seen here.

Bishop Richard thanks everyone for their response to the questionnaire.

  1. Hello,
    I’m contacting you from Tipperary in Ireland. I’m trying to find out if my parents were married in one of your parish churchs and was wondering if you can check the register for me. I think they were married in St. John of Rochester church.
    My mothers maiden name was Helen Fitzgerald and my fathers name is Joseph Patrick Graham. They were married on the 25th November 1967.
    As it’s coming up to their 50th wedding anniversary, we their children were going to send them on a little trip back to visit the church where they got married.
    I would really appreciate your help Sally, looking forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards

    Valerie Condon
