We assure Bishop Paul that he will always find a warm welcome here, in the parish and in Garstang as a whole. On behalf of the parish we want him to know we will always look forward to having him among us. We are part of his roots and we hope that coming home will be a source of strength and consolation to him when facing the difficulties of his office.
Let us keep him in our prayers. We wish him well.
