Our parish priest is Fr Pat Munroe, a native of Mayo, who has been working in the Diocese of Shrewsbury since his ordination. Fr Pat has worked in many of the parishes in the Diocese; most recently he was at Our Lady and the Apostles in Stockport, and came to us in September 2017. You can read a little more about him in the Parish history section. Fr Pat was taken ill in early 2019, and the parish was cared for by clergy from our local parishes, especially Fr John Rafferty (now retired) of St Vincent’s, and Fr Dominic Alih, a Spiritan Priest who came to us for three months from Glasgow to help us out.
Fr Tomasz Mamelka came to us from the Diocese of Szczecin in Poland in September 2019 and is priest in charge of the parish. He previously worked with Fr Pat in Stockport for a year while studying before going back to Poland for a while. Fr Tomasz has a PhD in Philosophy and lots of teaching experience, all of which is very useful in his work, and the parish benefits greatly from it. Fr Tomasz is with us by agreement with his Bishop for two years in this parish and possibly another after that, but we hope that he will be able to stay for a good long time. He is a great friend and support to Fr Pat.
We are part of Local Missionary Area 15 which consists of St Vincent’s in Altrincham, Holy Angels in Hale Barns and ourselves here in Timperley. Information and events are shared between our three parishes and also in the wider Deanery area.
