Announcement from Father Sam

It is a pleasure to be able to announce today that Emily, Arthur and I will be on the move (see announcement below)

We have had a wonderful 3 years in the Parish and it genuinely has been a pleasure to serve you as your Curate. I have learnt a tremendous amount about what it is to be a priest and I owe you all a huge debt of gratitude for the care you have shown to me and to us as a family. 

Our last Sunday in the parish will be on the 6th of June and we hope that restrictions will be sufficiently eased by this point and that the weather will be fine enough that we are able to hold an outdoor service and be able to say farewell properly. 

Please do keep us, and the people of St Matthew's, Oxhey in your prayers as we all prepare for this next phase in our lives and ministries. 

To be announced in all churches on Sunday, 25th April 2021

We are pleased to announce that the Rev’d Sam Frampton Assistant Curate of the Parish of Mill End and Heronsgate with West Hyde has been appointed Vicar St Matthew’s Oxhey in the Deanery of Watford.

 

Sam will be licensed in St Matthew’s Oxhey on 7th July 2021.

 

Please remember Sam, and his wife, Emily and their son, Arthur in your prayers as they prepare for their move.

His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh RIP

As a parish we wish to extend our sincere condolences to Her Majesty The Queen and the whole Royal Family at the news of His Royal Highness, The Duke of Edinburgh's death.

We will be leaving our buildings open during the day for the foreseeable to enable people to come and use these spaces as a place to mourn his death and celebrate his life.

A requiem mass was offered on Saturday 10th of April for The Duke of Edinburgh and was also live streamed on the Parish Facebook page.

Prayers will be offered in church on Saturday 17th of April ahead of The Duke of Edinburgh's funeral and the bell will be tolled to mark this occasion.
