On Saturday 22nd September 2018 the Bishop licenced Father Andrew Scurr as Assistant Curate for St Augustine’s Church, Painters Forstal, Kent. The Bishop also gave him special responsibility for the second Church in the Parish – Our Lady of Walsingham & St Francis of Assisi, Rochester, Kent. (The Rochester Church was amalgamated with the Pro-Cathedral Parish at the Diocesan Synod in April 2018).
After Mass on 22nd September the Bishop presented Fr Andrew with the keys to Rochester.
A new schedule of 2 masses a month will begin in October. The first Mass will be on Saturday 13th October – to celebrate the Co-Patronal Festival.
