Father Owain is a member of the Society of Catholic Priests. Members of the Society believe that we belong to one holy catholic and apostolic Church, ordaining men and women to serve as Deacons, Priests and Bishops in the Church of God; we also believe in the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist and in the use and practice of the seven Sacraments of the Church.
As well as his parish work, Fr. Owain serves the Diocese of Lincoln in a number of roles – serving on the Diocesan Synod and the Vocations Group. He is supervisor for two Curates based in Scunthorpe and is a Spiritual Director.
He is usually available in the church every Thursday morning following the 9.00am Eucharist and welcomes anyone for chat.
