Four Priests from Arundel & Brighton Diocese, Canon David Foley, Fr Albert Van der Most, Canon Mgr John Hull and Canon Gerarld Coates recently traveled to the English College in Rome to celebrate their various jubilees of ordination. They are pictured here with Arundel & Brighton seminarian Tristan Cranfield who is training in Rome for the priesthood and Mr Neville Barrie who was assisting Canon Coates for the visit.

They joined other jubilarian priests from England and Wales at Villa Palazzola and at the English College. The highlight of the visit for them was the audience with Pope Francis which took place during the week.

We give thanks for their many years of service to the priesthood and the diocese, and wish them many more.
Ad multos annos!
