Fr Bob Cooper Promoted


It has recently been announced that Fr Bob will be leaving St Giles to become Archdeacon of Sunderland. We would like to congratulate him on this important appointment, although he will be sorely missed in Pontefract. Fr Bob’s last service at St Giles’ is the 10.15 on Sunday June 10th and his collation at Durham cathedral is on Tuesday July 3rd at 17.15pm.
We wish him well in this appointment and appreciate the enormous contribution he has made to both St Giles, St Mary’s and to the town of Pontefract over more than a decade of service here.
