Fr Alex was part of our clergy pilgrimage to the Holy Land last year. Here he is seen atop a camel, which he rode, whilst we were in Jericho. As part of the Birmingham diocesan initiative to pray for priests, during this Year of the Priest, we are asked to pray especially for Fr Alex. Do please remember him. He was a great companion to be on pilgrimage and a fine Parish Priest, I'm sure. A great man. Also pictured is Fr Brian McGinley, though I'm not sure if he's getting in on the photo or holding Fr Alex upright. Answers on a postcard.
