St Luke's new Vicar announced

Fr Jez ClarksonWednesday 1 April 2015

At a surprise midnight news conference, St Luke's new Vicar has been announced.

Churchwardens Elaine Trill and Mark Homer explained that Fr Jez Clarkson had been unexpectedly released from his previous incumbency as Vicar of St Ig in the Archdeaconry of Gridlington.

"I think we could describe his style as punchy," said Mark.

"When we asked him how he felt about wearing vestments he said something about them being 'top gear'," added Elaine.

Fr Jez, 6'4", hopes he will be a good fit in our reasonably-sized pulpit, and plans to "sort out St Luke's Green Group once and for all".

Archdeacon Emeritus of Gridlington the Ven Armitage Shanks said, "Jezza is a man of enormous pastoral sensitivity and a natural diplomat, although I couldn't say whether he's a safe pair of hands on the wheel."

And on that bombshell...
