St Mary’s is delighted at the announcement of Bishop Jonathan Baker as the new Bishop of Fulham. Bishop Jonathan was born in the parish and we hope to welcome him for the Feast of the Epiphany in January 2013.

We have been richly blessed by the ministry of the acting bishop of Fulham Bishop Peter Wheatley, who has visited the parish 8 times and led the Easter Vigil with baptism and confirmations in 2012. So we say a huge thank you to Bishop Peter, for his apostolic ministry.

Bishop Jonathan as well as being a true academic is also a fine pastor and concerned for his clergy and people. He will have much to contribute to the diocese, as well as the Catholic cause.

We assure him of our prayers and practical support as he prepares for his new responsibilities.
