Hello St Philips. My name is Margaret and I will be joining your Parish this June. I’m a primary school teacher and have worked in Schools in Kenya, Uganda and London.

I am originally from Uganda but before coming to the UK I lived in Leipzig in Germany for six years and left just before the wall came down. I enjoy working with children which is the reason I have remained a school teacher all my life even though I studied economics. As a priest I enjoy pastoral work and meeting people in their own homes to learn more about them and discover their journey to faith.

When I was a young girl in Uganda I sang in the church choir. My greatest dangerous adventure was when I climbed Mt Elgon with a group of friends and reached the top with no problem at all. For some reason as an adult I then developed a fear of heights. I’m really looking forward to working with you all and journeying spiritually together with you.
