Fr Ben Hilton


The parish was blessed indeed to be able to host our new priest, Fr Ben Hilton, as he offered Mass in St Joseph’s on Monday evening.  He was joined by seminarians from Rome, his brother, Fr Josh, and many priests from diverse places such as Durham, Salford, Australia, HM Armed Forces and Castleford!  Our Parish Priest was the Master of Ceremonies, guiding Fr Ben through the rubrics of the Mass and keeping us all in order (i.e. bossing us around…again!)  After Mass, Fr Ben gave his ‘First Blessing’ and greeted people at the fabulous spread in the hall.  Thank you to all who worked so hard behind the scenes (in so many different ways) to make Monday evening yet another triumph!
