Rev Philip Heak has been appointed the new Rector of St Marys in Howth replacing Canon Kevin Brew who left the parish for a new posting last year. A native of Tandragee in Co. Armagh, Reverend Heak is currently Rector of Naas Union of Parishes in the Diocese of Meath and Kildare and his appointment was announced in both parishes on January 30th.
Rev Heak was ordained a deacon in 1995 and priested in 1996. He has served as Curate at St Mark’s, Lisburn and as Curate/Priest in Charge at St Nicholas’s, Galway. He was Diocesan Youth Officer in Cashel, Ferns and Ossory for six years before moving to Naas as Rector in 2006 where he has served ever since.
No doubt Canon Brew’s tenure will be difficult to follow but JustLocal would like to extend a warm welcome to Rev Heak and we look forward to supporting him in his work.
