As was previously announced at the weekend Masses, the Archbishop has announced around 15 different changes to the staffing of the parishes of the archdiocese.
St Joseph’s Bonnybridge is involved with the changes, with the current Parish Priest, Fr Kevin Dow being appointed as from the 5th September 2015 to be Parish Priest of Ss John & Columba’s in Rosyth and also to be Parish Priest of St Peter in chains’ Inverkeithing.
Replacing Fr Kevin, the Archbishop has appointed the Very Reverend Ryszard (Dick) Canon Holuka S.T.L., M.A., who was ordained in 1974.
Canon Holuka is currently Parish Priest of Our Lady of Lourdes in Blackburn and also of Our Lady’s Stoneyburn, both in West Lothian.
The Canon is no stranger to the area as he is a former Parish Priest of St Alexander’s Denny. We wish him every blessing in his ministry here in St Joseph’s.
