Mission Priest (Priest-in-Charge)

(under the episcopal care of the Bishop of Richborough)

The Bishop of Dover and the Patron wish to appoint a mission-minded priest in the Catholic tradition to be Mission Priest (Priest-in-Charge) for S. Peter’s. This is an innovative role, jointly funded by the Diocese and the Forward in Folkestone Foundation, for a full-time priest to lead the parish as it continues to grow in numbers and confidence after a time of rebuilding, both physically and spiritually.

Our new priest will be a man who

  • wants to care for all in our parish and those who visit;

  • has the Christian courage, confidence and charisma to lead, renew and inspire;

  • understands liturgy and Catholic tradition and how it can speak to all people today;

  • a strong team of laity and retired clergy who await your leadership but will care for you, too;

  • a challenge! Our parish is one with much potential but also has much hidden deprivation

    and complex needs;

  • A famous Anglo-Catholic mission church, newly restored, which serves as a beacon of faith

    across Folkestone and southeast Kent.

    The parish has passed the Resolution under the House of Bishops’ Declaration on the Ministry of Bishops and Priests.
