Parish Team


Fr Daniel Kelly

Fr Dan is nearly new to the Parish Team as he had been with us as a seminarian as part of his training for priesthood. He grew up in Southend and was ordained in his home parish of St Helen’s in Westcliff on 17th September 2011.

When Fr Dan isn’t in the parish he will more than likely be found in the cinema, as his hobby is film. He also loves reading and listening to music but he is never happier than when he is lost in a cinematic masterpiece.

Sr Clare Kane, OSU

Sr Clare came to Basildon in 2003. She is a Brentwood Ursuline Sister with long experience as a teacher and headteacher, as well as many pastoral roles within the Ursuline Community, including time as its leader from 1993 - 2001. Sr Clare is originally from the North East, and was professed as a Religious Sister in 1967. She is very keen on inclusion and welcome, and especially on promoting the role of women in the Church.

Sarah White, Parish Administrator

Sarah grew up in Brentwood and moved to Langdon Hils/Basildon in 2006. Formerly an administrator at Mercer Ltd and at Basildon Hospital, Sarah became the Parish Secretary in Spring 2015. Sarah is married to Sam and, in her spare time, enjoys travel, country walks and going to the theatre.
