Fr Roy Tablizo

Fr Roy Tablizo originates from the Philippines (San Andres, Catanduanes Province) and was ordained a Priest for the Diocese of Virac.

He came to the UK about nine years ago, during which time he has completed a degree in Canon Law and was incardinated into the Archdiocese of Southwark.

Up until September 2011 he was an Assistant Priest at St Thomas More in East Dulwich. He was then asked by the Archbishop to take charge of our Parish. He was inducted as our Parish Priest in November 2011 during a Sunday Mass. Holy Family Church was full to overflowing. We were very happy and overjoyed to host a number of Parishioners from his previous Parish who made the journey to share in our celebration.

Fr Roy is putting his Canon Law degree to good use, and is undertaking some work for the Southwark Archdiocese Marriage Tribunal. He has also joined the Board of Governors of our Primary School – Holy Family.

Fr Michael Woodgate

Fr Michael Woodgate lives in our Parish. He is a member of Staff at St John’s Seminary in Wonersh.

Fr Michael often says the Weekday and Sunday Masses at our Church – St Thomas of Canterbury – in Headcorn.
