“I’m very excited and nervous to join the Parish of Seaford. Over the years I have learned a lot about parish life and still learning because each community is unique and gifted. I don’t know anyone in the parish here. I have visited our schools and getting to know more about them. I wish to be with you in everything. Looking forward to see you all over the coming weeks”, says Fr. Martin
Most welcome to our parish.
