Father Irek

Father Irek is our new parish priest and is serving in the parishes of Uckfield, Heron's Ghyll and Crowborough. We welcome him to our school community.

Deacon David

Hello, I am Deacon David. I assist Father Irek in the parishes of Our Lady Immaculate and St Philip Neri in Uckfield and St John the Evangelist in Heron's Ghyll. I have been a deacon for twenty three years, and have been in Uckfield for twenty years. During that time I was a chaplain to front-line emergency staff of the South East Coast Ambulance Service for fourteen years and a chaplain to front-line emergency staff of the East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service for four years.

  Deacon Ken

I am Deacon Ken and married to Jenny. We have three children and four grandchildren. We lived in Essex until we moved to the West Country in 1996 and we moved to Uckfield in October 2014 to be nearer our younger daughter and younger granddaughter. I was ordained a deacon for Clifton Diocese in July 2004. I ministered for ten years in a parish with three churches - one in each of the three small towns – it was largely a rural parish. Jenny and I are very grateful for the warm reception we received from the people in Uckfield and Heron’s Ghyll. I look forward to assisting Fr Ian and Deacon David in serving in the two parishes and working with the staff, pupils and parents at St Philip’s school.
