Farewell to Fr Duane


Fr Duane has been asked by Bishop Marcus to become a permanent Chaplain at the Leeds Teaching Hospitals from the 1st August. 


Fr Duane says: “I’m sad to be leaving after such a relatively short time of around 4 years and take with me some fond memories of the parishioners of the parish of Blessed Edmund Sykes.  I wish my successor Fr Craig Fitzpatrick every success, and I am sure you will make him welcome and strive to support him as we enter the next stage of the Coronavirus pandemic, which has had such a large impact on the parish.


Could I also thank all those who have been so generous with their kind messages and gifts.”
