Louis Darrant

We are delighted to announce the appointment of The Reverend Louis Darrant (38) as Associate Vicar of St Paul’s Knightsbridge. Fr Louis’ ministerial formation was at The College of the Resurrection, Mirfield and he was trained as a curate and served his title at St John the Divine, Kennington. A rugby-playing Welsh speaker with a passion for children’s ministry, excellent liturgical sense and a good singing voice, Fr Louis was, for eight years, Rector of Maldon in Chelmsford Diocese where he built up a strong, authentic Christian community in that market town. He brings a wealth of experience to the parish. At its last meeting, the PCC lent its enthusiastic approval to the appointment and, following consultation with the Bishop of London, Fr Louis will be licensed by him this coming week.

There will be the chance to welcome Fr Louis in person on Sunday 13th December, when he formally begins his ministry here at the 11:00 o’clock mass.
