We are part of the Catholic Parish of St. Columba & St. Theresa, formed by the merger of the two separate parishes in the summer of 2019. Prior to the formal merger the two parishes had been working jointly for several years. The formal merger coincided with clergy changes: Bishop Mark Davies moved Fr. Jonathan Brandon and Fr. Isidore Madueke to other appointments in the diocese, and placed our newly-formed parish in the care of the Spiritans – the Holy Ghost Fathers. The Spiritans appointed the two priests now serving our parish, and who are resident in the presbytery at St. Theresa’s:

  • Parish Priest Fr. William Damah CSSp,
  • Assistant Priest Fr. James Mchamungu CSSp.

In some ways the merger is still “work in progress” – including website issues. This website and the one for St Columba’s will be replaced by a single new website that fully covers the activities at both churches (two churches, one parish). In the meantime, the St Columba website is the more comprehensive of the two:
