He has now officially been appointed Pastor of the Ordinariate Mission as well. meaning that – like several other Ordinariate priests in the UK – he has a double responsibility both for the territorial parish and for the Ordinariate community.
The previous Pastor, Mgr. Edwin Barnes, has posted the following report of Fr. Darryl’s induction on his blog Antique Richborough:
This weekend Mgr Keith Newton was with us to inaugurate Fr Darryl’s ministry as Pastor to the Bournemouth Ordinariate Mission. He preached on the Epistle – ‘not many wise, not many mighty’ – then we all joined in a very happy lunch party.
Here Mgr Keith is speaking with Mary Taylor after Mass. Among other things Mary is our safe-guarding officer – a task she also undertakes in her daily work which involves organising the fostering of children in the Bournemouth area. Mgr Keith is modelling the Lenten Vestments recently bought by the Mission, and known affectionately as the Cadbury’s Dairy Milk set.
As always the bring-and-share lunch was a huge success. Almost everyone who was at Mass contributed to the party, so that there was enough food left over to fill the proverbial twelve baskets.
