Prayers and Congratulations, Father Toby

Rev. Toby Boutle, a former parishioner and churchwarden at Holy Trinity, will be ordained priest by the Bishop of Chichester this Saturday 10th June at 6.00 pm in St. Bartholomew’s Church, Brighton. He will celebrate his first Mass on Tuesday 13th at St. George’s Church Whyke, in Chichester, where he is working.

It is a humbling thought that Toby’s sense of vocation to the priesthood was nurtured partly at Holy Trinity – that people in this parish were a part of God’s plan for him – and that he has responded so generously to God’s call. Please keep him in your prayers at this time. We wish him every blessing in his future ministry and look forward to welcoming him back to Holy Trinity in the near future.
