Last night Christopher Smith became the tenth vicar of St Alban’s Holborn.
The Induction and Institution ended almost a year long wait for a successor to Howard Levett who is now chaplain to St George’s in Venice.
Fr Smith arrives from St Michael’s Beckenham to begin his time at Hoborn as St Alban’s celebrates the 50th anniversary of its rebuilding after bomb damage.
There will be a thanksgving day on Sunday 26 June. The preacher at a parish Mass at 10.30am is to be Fr Raymond Avent who was assistant priest at the time of reconstruction. Solemn Evensong and Benediction is at 3.30pm following buffet lunch in the St Albans Centre.
