Last Sunday the Bishop of Fulham, celebrating the Epiphany Mass at All Hallows’, Gospel Oak, announced the retirement of Prebendary David Houlding as Vicar of the Parish. At the end of July, he will reach the age of 'three score years and 10' and, therefore, retire on 25 July 2023.
His last Sunday in the Parish will be 23 July but there will also be a farewell celebration before that date (3 June) with an open invitation to SSC Brothers.
Requiescat in Provence!!
