Fr Charles Briggs – an update


Fr Briggs is very grateful to you all for your Masses, prayers, cards and kind wishes. Please continue to keep him in your prayers.

As expected, Father’s health has continued to worsen because of the cancer that he has, along with his existing health problems. Following medical advice, his family today agreed to transfer him for the time being, to St Christopher’s Hospice in Sydenham where additional support is on hand. 

In the current circumstances, St Christopher’s has told us that they cannot allow visitors apart from two named people. Father Charles has asked his brother Matt Briggs and his priest friend, Father Finigan to take on this role.

Cards and letters can be sent to Father Charles care of:

St Christopher’s Hospice
51-59 Lawrie Park Road
London
SE26 6DZ

Emails can be sent to him care of the parish email address: chislehurst@rcaos.org.uk 

Thank you for your support and concern, and especially your prayers.

Fr Tim Finigan
Matt Briggs
