Our New Parish Priest
A Message from Fr Brian McGinley

Dear Parishioners,

I am delighted to inform you that Archbishop Bernard has appointed Fr. Nazarius Mgungwe to be the new Parish Priest of St. Joseph's Malvern.

Fr. Naz, as he likes to be called, is a native of Malawi but has been incardinated into the Birmingham archdiocese for several years now. He is at present Parish Priest of Sacred Heart Parish in Oxford but hopes to move into his new parish by the end of the month.

Please keep him in your prayers as he takes up his new responsibilities.

Yours sincerely in Christ,
Canon Brian McGinley
Dean of Worcester
