Welcome to our new Priest and warmest thanks to Father Martin Morris.

Another period of change has occurred at St. Aidan's, Benton.  After just one year  Father Martin Morris has been moved to the West End of the City and we wish him all the best in his new role.  

We also extend our warmest thanks for the very positive impact he has had on our Parish in such a short time.  

We are now delighted to welcome Father Arockia Mariadass Pagyasamy, who takes over the care of both St. Aidan's and our sister Parish St. Teresa's.  He also has a huge job to do as he is responsible for a number of hospitals. 

We welcome him into our parish community and look forward to working with him to further build our community.  



 

Have YOU got any suggestions?

Thanks to your support and involvement the Justice and Peace bank balance is looking rather healthy.
We are now looking for suggestions as to good causes that the parish can donate to.
This money has been raised specifically to assist justice and peace good causes both here in the UK and overseas therefore donations can only be made to causes that promote increased justice and/or peace.
If you have any ideas please contact a member of the Justice and Peace Group or use the contact form on this website. 
We look forward to hearing from you with your ideas.  If you would like more information please visit our Justice and Peace page here...
