Mrs Dodd ‘retires’


Mrs Dodd has been a mainstay of the church for many years, but age and health mean she is ‘retiring’ to Sheffield now, where her daughter lives. After the service today there was a buffet and an opportunity to wish her well for the future.

Farewell Fr Tom

Mark Wisbey reports:

Fr Tom Atfield celebrated his last Mass at St. Edmund’s on Palm Sunday.  Fr Tom is leaving the Dudley Benefice to start his new post at Shrewsbury Abbey.  Fr Tom will be missed at St. Edmund’s.  We pray for Fr Tom as he starts his new ministry in the Lichfield Diocese.
