Welcome to our new Parish Priest

At the start of September our new parish priest, Fr Andrew Gallagher, arrived in the parishes. Fr Andrew was ordained a priest in 2011 and has served as Assistant Priest in St Monica’s, Palmers Green (2011-2014) and Our Lady and St Joseph’s Church, Dalston Kingsland (2014-16). For the past five years he has been the Precentor of Westminster Cathedral with responsibility for the liturgy and special services. Fr Andrew is also the Assistant Director for the Westminster Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes, helping to organise taking a large group from across the diocese to the shrine each July. Having grown up in Harpenden Fr Andrew is pleased to be posted to his native Hertfordshire and looks forward to working with our three parishes and continuing the good work of Fr Shaun in bringing our communities together whilst also maintaining their unique and special characters.
