On 5th August the former parish priest, Fr Tom Jordan, sadly passed away, and his funeral took place on 19th August
We continue to keep Fr Tom and his family very firmly in our prayers, giving thanks for the 17 years he served here in Romford.
Thank you to all who joined us in prayer, online and in person, to remember our beloved Parish Priest, Fr Tom Jordan, at his Vigil and Funeral on 18th and 19th August. More than 500 people lined Park End Road and Park Drive in a wonderful and moving testament to Fr Tom’s 17 years of ministry in Romford. Fr Tom’s family, and the whole parish, are uplifted by your prayerful support.
The Livestream Mass remains available: to watch and pray, click on this direct link: https://youtu.be/D_SaXi7tkB8 We are sorry that due to the noise of the organ pipes there is interference on the sound during the Mass.
Fr Dominic has re-recorded the homily, so there is no background noise; today why not take ten minutes in memory of Fr Tom? Listen to the homily, add in your own memories, and pray for Fr Tom and for the whole parish. The direct link to the re-record on YouTube is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfCtoT9jiKU&t=6s
To begin the grace-filled and memorable procession along Park End Road and Park Drive Bishop Alan and priests of the Diocese sang the Salve Regina, and you can see that here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K21PBSeCbNE
May Fr Tom Rest in Peace and Rise in Glory. Amen.
