Parish Priest – Fr Chinedo Udo
My name is Fr Chinedu Udo. I am originally from Nigeria, of Igbo parents. When my family moved to England, we settled in Finsbury Park and St Mellitus, Tollington Park became my home parish. In 2009 I was accepted to study for the priesthood in Allen Hall Seminary by the late Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor. Interestingly, the first parish we visited as new seminarians was Pimlico. Canon Pat Browne was very welcoming. I wouldn’t have believed that I will be the one to succeed him upon his retirement.
I was ordained in 2016 by Cardinal Vincent Nichols at Westminster Cathedral. I served as a Curate for five years in Enfield before being moved to South Harrow in 2021 which lasted only four months. I was appointed the parish priest of St Mellitus, Tollington Park (my home parish) in January 2022.
My next bus stop is Pimlico. I am very grateful to be here at The Church of the Holy Apostles. I look forward to meeting and knowing you all here in the parish.
