Rather strangely, but well within the law, St Michael’s has two parish priests. When Bishop Declan entrusted the parishes of Our Lady of Glastonbury, Ss Joseph & Teresa Wells, Our Lady Queen of Apostles Cheddar, and St Michael’s Shepton, to the Community of Our Lady of Glastonbury, he made both priests responsible as parish priests for all four parishes.
Fr Anselm has previously served as Parish Priest in Weston-super-Mare and Dursley. He was also a full-time prison chaplain in Wakefield for a time.
Fr Bede has been Parish Priest in Warminster, and has been a school chaplain for Chavagnes International college in France, and the Riddle family in Northumberland.
