Licensing of our new parish priest

The Reverend James McDonald was licensed on the Eve of the Feast of St Matthew at Solemn Choral Evensong by the Lord Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu. The church was filled with friends and well-wishers from across York and much further afield and it was a very happy occasion. Fr James will lead worship at St Lawrence for the first time on Sunday 24th September. Please pray for him as he begins his work in York.
