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