Vicar

We are currently in a period of vacancy, following the departure of Fr Philip. We hope to have a new priest appointed during the course of 2021.

Canon Bernard Gribbin - Retired

Canon Bernard Gribbin

After training as a chef, working at the Ritz Hotel London and doing National Service, Fr Bernard decided to train as a priest.

Following his time at theological college, he completed his training in Birkenhead and was ordained as a priest in 1961 in the Diocese of Liverpool.

As well as his role as vicar, he has been a Stewardship Advisor to Bradford Diocese and Precentor and vicar choral at Chester Cathedral. He was made a Canon of Chester Cathedral in 1991.

He continued his role of a vicar until his retirement in 1996, when he joined the team of retired priests, here, at St Margaret’s.

He married Betty in 1960 and has family......

Fr Bernard brings a great wealth of experience, wisdom and love to our church.

50 years as a Priest...
