History - St. Thomas More
Father Niven was replaced as Parish Priest by Father Paul Jennings
To Fr Niven from the Governors and Headteacher, Annecy Primary School:
"We would like to thank you for all you have done during your time as a member of school family and Governing Body. Your presence at all our meetings and functions has been greatly appreciated, not just for your knowledge and wisdom, but your pastoral care and support.
We also thank you for your tremendous times you have visited them whether to celebrate Mass or to guide them through the stages of their life from Reception through to Year 6. They have all felt the joy of your spiritual energy, and witnessed the passion of your teaching.
We can happily and gratefully say that the Annecy children have grown in their love of Jesus and his teachings during your time with them. We give thanks to the Lord for the time you have spent with us and send our very greatest hope and prayers that you have a happy time moving to your new parish."
With our kindest regards, Maggie Prout and Fiona McGonigle. Chair of Governors and Headteacher, Annecy Catholic Primary School.
ON A PERSONAL NOTE: I have already been welcomed into my new home by a number of you - thank you for your kind wishes and assurance of prayers. I am looking forward to meeting lots of you at Mass this weekend.
Fr. Paul Jennings
