About Father Richard Whinder

Fr Richard Whinder

Our Parish Priest, Fr Richard Whinder, was born in Bromley, South East London and later studied history at King's College London, where he discerned his vocation to the Priesthood. He then trained at the Venerable English College in Rome, before serving as an Assistant Priest in Canterbury, Norbury and New Malden. St Mary Magdalen, Mortlake was his first appointment as parish priest. He has preserved his interest in history, and a love for Italy, as well as enjoying reading, walking and catching up with old friends.
