Fr Patrick’s induction as parish priest of the Parish of Our Lady and St Anne took place on the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord (Candlemas) , 2nd February 2018. The Rite of Induction was presided over by the Dean of South Oxford, the Reverend Paul Fitzpatrick. Fr Patrick was the main celebrant at Mass, and preached the homily.
Fr Patrick was parish priest of the parish of Saint Peter & Saint Paul, Wolverhampton, from 1999 to 2013, and a large group from this parish was present at the induction ceremony and Mass, and at a celebration in the Cenacle afterwards. The chasuble that Fr Patrick is wearing in the picture above, and which he wore for the Eucharistic liturgy, was given to him by the parishioners of Saint Peter & St Paul for his Silver Jubilee.
