Who we are

Parish Priest 

Fr Frankie Mulgrew

Fr Frankie was a professional comedian before being ordained a Catholic priest in 2013. He compiled the books 'Does God LOL?' and 'Miracles R Us' and also ran a ‘Mercy Bus’ during 2016’s ‘Year of Mercy’. He has been our parish priest here since September 2018.

Fr Frankie loves running, watching sports and live theatre. His spiritual goal for Parish is, for parishioners to know more and more how loved they are by Jesus and Mary…and to be true disciples of Jesus Christ.
