Parish Priest: Canon Philip Moor
0151 606 4362
I was born in 1966, grew up in Wallasey and after leaving school worked for Barclays Bank until 1992, when I began my seminary training. I was ordained priest at St Alban’s, Liscard, in July 1998 and have served in four parishes before coming back to Wallasey in September 2009.
In 2011, the parishes of English Martyrs and SS Peter and Paul’s were amalgamated to form the new parish of Holy Apostles and Martyrs and I was appointed parish priest. I also have Diocesan responsibilities as Vicar General and Bishop’s Vicar for Administration so for much of the week I am based at the Diocesan Curial Offices in Birkenhead.
In my spare time, I am a season ticket holder at Liverpool FC and enjoy spending time with family and friends. I am very privileged to be parish priest of such a wonderful parish working alongside so many gifted and generous people helping to proclaim the Gospel message here in North Wallasey.
Parish life has been split into five areas, each containing a number of ministries, with an experienced member of the parish as Co-ordinator. The five areas are:
Co-ordinators are the first point of reference for leaders of ministries and a useful source of information for the parish. They meet together with the parish priest six times a year to review and report back on parish life and plan ahead for the future.
