Fr Chris Benyon retires from St Mary of the Angels Parish, Worthing
Fr Chris Benyon retires from St Mary of the Angels Parish, WorthingThe Parish of St Mary of the Angels, Worthing, turned up in force to say goodbye to Fr Chris Benyon, who retired on Sunday 27th September. Parishioners said goodbye at each Mass that day, in addition to a “Bring a Dish” reception in the Sion School hall next door.  


We had many varieties of food to choose from, as the parish is very multi-cultural! Fr Chris will be sadly missed as he was a ‘people person’, and very good with the children. 


When the Philippine Children sang at the reception Fr Chris was very happy to join them in the line on the stage! A cake was made by one of the parishioners – decorated with various beach symbols; Fr Chris loves the sea and is a devoted surfer. Fr Terry Martin joined the parish this week.
