Permission To Officiate Priest:
The Reverend Michael Young
I have been the schools and children's worker in Wareham since 2010. Since being ordained in 2017 I have been part-time as schools worker and part-time as the curate in the next-door parish. Later this year (2020) I will, God willing, be licensed to the parish of Wareham as a pioneer, hoping to hang out in the community and seeing what God does with that. I love to walk, particularly on the coast path, to get dirt under my fingernails working in my garden, and to sleep under the stars. Oh - and I love to talk about Jesus, so, if you would like to do that too, maybe we could hang out in the community together sometime.
