Save our Vicar

This petition had 423 supporters

Our Vicar, John Leonard celebrates his 70th birthday in June this year.

We have heard the sad news that after 29 years in Kingskerswell, Devon, he is being forced to retire at the end of June 2018.  He has requested that he be allowed to stay on in his role for a further 12 months but the Bishop of Exeter has denied this.

John plays a vital role in the promotion of Christian values at the local school as well as supporting the childrens spiritual development and also within our community.  If he leaves our Parish we will be without a Vicar for upwards of a year without any guarantee that a replacement will take over in the future.

Neither the local school or the Church Wardens have been asked their views about whether John continues to be fit and able to continue.

I pray you will support this petition to keep John in the Parish he has devoted his life to for another year.
