Our Parish Priest

Our Parish Priest, Fr Tom Smith, was ordained in 2005 at Clifton Cathedral by Bishop Declan Lang. Fr Tom is passionate about prayer, preaching and helping people encounter God’s mercy in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. He also loves working with young people. Fr Tom studied for the priesthood at the English College, Valladolid, Spain and Oscott College in Birmingham. Since his ordination he has served as an assistant priest at Clifton Cathedral and St Gregory’s Church, Cheltenham.

He has worked as a Parish Priest at St George’s Church, Warminster and now here at St Bon’s. Fr Tom was closely involved with the Catholic Youth Movement Youth 2000 as a seminarian and now continues his involvement as a priest.  Fr Tom welcomes you warmly to St Bon’s.  Please do come and say “hi” to him after Mass or if you would like an appointment, please contact the Parish Office.
