It is with great pleasure that St Thomas Church announces a new member of its clergy team. The Reverend Ron Wickens, with approval of the St Thomas Church Council, The Interim Priest In Charge Patrick Blaney and the Blessing of our Bishop The Right Reverend Michael Ingham has become an Honorary Assistant Priest at St Thomas. The honorary position is effective immediately. Ron is a recently retired priest in the Diocese and has become a congregant of St Thomas along with his wife Pat. Ron agreed to take on the position and ministry of Honorary Assistant Priest and will therefore from time to time take the role of Presider and / or Preacher at our services, most noticeably when Patrick is away on vacation or study leave, but also at other points in the year. Please look up more about Ron in the About Us section of our site. Ron will be formally welcomed to this new position this Sunday, January 23 and will preside at the service. Once again St Thomas is very pleased to make this announcement and officially welcome Ron to our clergy team!
