During the Christmas Holidays we also welcomed Fr. Patrick Doyle to our parish. Father Doyle is a member of the Community of Priests and Brothers that staffs the parish of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, South Kensington, better known as Bromptom Oratory. Father has family around the Bury area and when he comes to visit them he comes to St Marie's to offer his daily Mass. It is also nice to see him and catch up with news of the Church in the 'torrid south.'
