When I came to St Paul’s I was asked, ‘By what do you want to be called?’ I said that I had been known as Fr Michael in Ealing and as you had asked for a catholic tradition priest I thought my name should remain the same.
Most were pleased, remembering the days of Fr Anthony but one person said, “Oh we’re not going down that road again are we?” I was disconcerted, somewhat hurt, but replied that the Parish Profile has said the tradition was catholic! Indeed this had been the case since Fr Gorbold's time back in 1936.
This article by the Very Revd Andrew Nunn made me think and I thought I would share it with you.
