Meet the Team


Fr Philip was born in Cyprus and has spent much of his life travelling around. It’s complicated. After completing his doctorate in History at St Andrews in Scotland, Fr Philip felt called to the priesthood, undertook further studies at Durham, and since his ordination has worked with the Youth Service at Castlerigg Manor, and is currently parish priest at St Joseph's in Lancaster and Catholic Chaplain to the University. A great fan of the outdoors, Fr Philip enjoys running, hiking, cycling, looking after his dog Bosco, and anything and everything to do with life.
