Welcome to the website of St Aloysius’ Church
NB - Our new mass timetable begins this weekend - see below
Welcome to our new Parish Priest Fr Gerard Mitchell SJ
We warmly welcome back to Glasgow Fr Gerard Mitchell SJ, who has taken up the post of Parish Priest here at St Aloysius.
Fr Mitchell has been working as parish priest at St Anselm's in Southall, London, for more than 10 years and returns to St Aloysius for his second period as Parish Priest. It's wonderful to welcome him back!
... And farewell to Fr Dermot Preston SJ
Sadly, though, saying 'hello' to Fr Mitchell means we must also say 'goodbye' to Fr Dermot Preston, who has served us so well over the past three and a half years, guiding us through the worst of the pandemic, the Church closure, the innovation to online Masses, the production of a newsletter to rival Time Magazine and so much more!
Fr Dermot moves to Newcastle to open a new Jesuit initiative there, with two other Jesuits. Fr Gero McLoughlin goes there from the Edinburgh community, and Fr Peter Randall is going there from Preston.
We wish them every blessing and success in their new work and look forward to welcoming Fr Dermot back to the parish at a later date, for a better 'farewell' than we could give him during pandemic restrictions.
In his own inimitable way he leaves us with this vision for his new mission in Newcastle...
Haste ye back...!
