Fr Andrew Swift is Priest in Charge of S. Saviour Smallthorne and S. Werbur gh Burslem. He is also the Catholic Parish Mission Partner for the North Stoke Deanery - which is a grand way of saying he's the Parish Priest. Before coming to Smallthorne Fr Andrew finished his curacy in a London parish and has returned to his Midlands roots in order to take up his first appointment as Vicar.
Fr Andrew is married to Sarah-Claire and they have two cats and a dog.
You may also meet Fr Ron Whittingham, Fr Allan Townsend, and Fr Terry Warner who are both retired but live locally and help out.
