For those of you who either live in York, or have reasonable access to it, and who may be interested.
Compline by candlelight returns this coming Saturday at 9pm!

Venue: St. Mary's Church, Bishophill Junior (just off Micklegate/Priory Street)

For more details and regular updates, check the calendar - there's no need to keep asking me!
I look forward to seeing you hopefully either on Saturday, or at some point during Eastertide!

Fr. Hugh Curristan.

I've just read an news item from the local York Press about this priest who died recently, who was at one time my PP. He was at English Martyrs' church for the best part of 30 years.

Despite his Liberace impersonations(!) he was a good priest, and heroically saved the day for Rudgate's first service in Everingham back in November 1999, when I managed to get myself interviewed by the local BBC and ended up being quoted on page 3 of the Catholic Herald! (If you click on this link, you'll need to scroll down quite a bit to get to 1999, but it's there! We sang Victoria à 6 Requiem, which was wonderful.)

You can read the piece here.

May he rest in peace.
