Our Companion Parishes:
Saint Saviour Pimlico: Altar Swap, June 2010

This past June, the Rev’d Matthew Woodward,Vicar of our companion parish in London, Saint Saviour Pimlico, and I swapped places for two weeks. Fr Woodward came to New York and preached and celebrated at Saint Ignatius while I did the same at Saint Saviour. This was a wonderful opportunity to make real the partnership that we had undertaken a year earlier as part of a scheme promoted by the Bishops of London and New York to twin parishes in Central London with churches in Manhattan. Our exchange gave each parish a chance to learn about the other, peak people’s curiosity, and encourage further contacts.Speaking for myself, I had a wonderful time and really treasure the new freindships and connexions I made in London. We all hope that what was begun in 2009 and expanded this year with our visits, will continue to grow and thrive in the years to come.
