Father Gerard O'Shaughnessy sdb
Fr Gerry is a member of the Salesian Community and lives on the Surrey Lane Estate with his fellow Salesians who have lived in Battersea since St John Bosco sent the very first group of three Salesians in 1887. He is a former teacher and still enjoys Chaplaincy Ministry in our excellent parish schools. He has a firm love of history and is author of the 2016 publication "Pastoral Popes" which is a look at the modern papacy and how it has influenced parochial practice across the Church. Together with Deacon Michael he is working on a new book for teachers, parents and governors on the need for effective worship within our Catholic schools. Gerry leads the Parish Team that serves both Battersea Parishes.
