The Archdiocese of Birmingham - The Parish of the Immaculate Conception

Holy Trinity, Hethe.

I offer my heartfelt thanks to Father Paul Lester for his ministry at Hethe and for his fellowship within the Deanery.  I would like to wish Father Paul every blessing and assure him of our prayers.

Archbishop Bernard has appointed me as Parish Priest of Holy Trinity, Hethe. I look forward to serving the community with complete dedication and devotion. None of us like change but sometimes change provides us  with new opportunities and a new vision for the parish. So let us pray that we, as a community, will grow to be faithful followers of our Lord and be a witness in the community. Father Anthony Talbot will be moving into Hethe Presbytery at the beginning of December 2017. I would like to ask all of you for your understanding with regards to Mass times and other services.

I have already met the committee members twice to discuss practicalities and I look forward to meeting the whole Hethe parish at Masses next weekend. I will also be coming on Thursday to celebrate Mass at 7.00pm. Meanwhile let us pray for each other.  

God bless you all.

 Canon John Y Batthula
