A Double Silver Jubilee!
Canon Geoffrey Bennett (St Budock) [left] and Fr. Jon Bielawski (St Mary’s) [right] are both celebrating 25 years of ordained priestly ministry – Geoffrey on 1 July and Fr. Jon on 7 July.
Both are good friends of FPCT who have done much to foster ecumenism in our area. We send them our warmest congratulations and thanks, and wish them many more years in their ministry. Their congregations will be celebrating with them at 7pm on 1 July at Budock with the Bishop of Truro, while at St Mary’s the celebrations on 7 July start with Mass at 6.30pm, followed by food and refreshments in the parish hall, to which everyone is invited. Fr. Jon has been appointed as Episcopal Vicar for Evangelisation, Catechesis & Schools in the Diocese of Plymouth, which sadly means he will be leaving Falmouth in September, so this will also be an opportunity to say farewell and to wish him well in his new role.
