Our Priest:

Fr. Lixson Cyriac OFM Cap.Rev. Fr. Lixson Cyriac OFM Cap. I am a member of the Franciscan Capuchins and belong to our province in Kerala, India, where I was born. This is where I commenced my studies and completed all my formation and training for priesthood with the Capuchins in India.

I was ordained a priest on 16th November 2006. In 2011, I travelled to the UK as both a supply Priest in the Diocese of Southwark and to undertake further studies.

During my stay in the Diocese of Southwark I served as an assistant priest in St. Thomas More, East Dulwich and latterly in St Augustine’s, Tunbridge Wells. While carrying out my pastoral duties I completed a postgraduate degree in Psychology, thanks to the support I received from both Southwark Diocese and the above parishes, for this support and encouragement I am most grateful.

On 12th September 2019, I was given the responsibility to act and serve as the parochial administrator for St. Simon and St. Jude R.C. Streatham Hill. I am very grateful for the warm welcome I have received. It is evident to me that this is a small but intimate community. I very much look forward to my pastoral work in this parish, to share and enrich our spirituality and growth with the time we have together.

In the months ahead I look forward to meeting and getting to know all the parishioners and their families and enjoying my duties as we work together and we share our spiritual journey and the days ahead.
