An end to our presence in Scotland

In recent weeks the Augustinians have announced that we will be withdrawing from the parish of St Joseph’s, Edinburgh, soon after Easter 2020. Sadly, this will bring to an end our presence in Scotland.

The community of three friars will be taking up new appointments. In fact, Fr Paul Graham has already begun his new ministry as Assistant General in Rome. The Provincial and his Council have just published the list of new appointments. Fr Ian Wilson is appointed to Clare Priory as Parish Priest; Fr Sean Quinlan is appointed to St Mary’s Harborne, Birmingham. Fr Sean and Fr Ian will take up their new appointments after Easter. Fr Robert Marsh, on moving from Clare, is appointed as a member of the community at St Augustine’s Hammersmith, residing at Dorville Crescent; Fr Paul Graham, as previously mentioned.

Our prayers go with them all.
