Based in the centre of this vibrant and rapidly growing town, the three congregations of willing and committed people would welcome a prayerful priest for the Parish of Swindon New Town, which is under the alternative episcopal, sacramental and pastoral care of The Bishop of Ebbsfleet.

We seek a Priest of The Society who

· has enthusiasm and pastoral experience to work collaboratively to reach out to the wider community and encourage others to join the congregations;

· holds management and leadership skills to strengthen the unity of, and guide the parish into the future

· loves and cares for his people

· teaches the Christian faith

· celebrates the Sacraments in the Catholic tradition

· can work in partnership with neighbouring parishes for the strengthening of faith and the enrichment of worship.

The parish offers a very committed team of people, which aims to ensure that the priest will be free to carry out his vital work, unencumbered by day-to-day administration.
