The Sevenoaks blog has announced its final post which you can read here. The Incumbent Fr Ivan Aquilina and his curate, Deacon James Bradley have announced their intentions to resign. Fr Aquilina writes:
'For this reason I have written to the Bishop of Rochester notifying him that I intend to resign from this Parish in order to become a Roman Catholic in the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham.
Fr James has notified the same bishop that he intends to resign for the same noble reason.'
You can read Fr Aquilina's statement here. We here in Reading thanks them both for their friendship and look forward to journeying forward with them in the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham.
Our Lady of Walsingham, pray for us.
Blessed John Henry Newman, pray for us.
