A new book published this month by our Assistant Bishop, Frank Sargeant, commemorates the life and writings of Canon Peter Green, one of Manchester’s great parish priests of the last century.
Peter Green was a Prayer Book Catholic who ministered at Sacred Trinity and then for many years at St Philip, Salford, while serving for 50 years as a residentiary canon of Manchester Cathedral.
The book, A Complete Parish Priest, is an investigation and commemoration of the life and writings of Canon Peter Green, once described as ‘the greatest parish priest of the Twentieth Century’, who died 50 years ago, on 17 November 1961.
Author Frank Sargeant, former Bishop of Stockport, draws on Green’s Artifex articles published in the Manchester Guardian for over 40 years and his deposited papers in Manchester Cathedral archives.
A Complete Parish Priest is available at £15 (+ £3 p&p) from G B Skelly, The Anglo-Catholic History Society, 24 Cloudesley Square, London N1 0HN (firstname.lastname@example.org). Also available from St Denys Bookshop, Manchester.
