Parish News

Canon Gerard Kearney has been appointed by the bishop as St Aelred’s new Parish Priest from this summer. He will also be the new parish priest of St Mary’s, Knaresborough. As both St Aelred’s and St Mary’s Parishes will be under the care of one parish priest, it will be necessary to review the number and times of the Masses celebrated within the two parishes. Between now and the summer, Fr Simon Bradbury (the current Parochial Administrator of St Aelred’s and Dean of the Harrogate Deanery) and Deacon David Arblaster, together with the current parish priest of St Mary’s Knaresborough, will conduct a consultation exercise within both parish communities to try and discern with you all what the best configuration of liturgical provision might be.
