‘Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good: for his steadfast love endures for ever!’ (Psalm 118:1)

Dear Friends,

My name is Mickey Mantle. As you will likely know I have been given the very great privilege of coming to St Thomas’ to serve as your next Rector. I am married to Ellie and we have been entrusted with our children Jono (7), Olivia (5) and Theo (3).

Many of you have kindly asked us how we are feel having finally arrived. Our answer is that we feel SO grateful!

Our hearts echo the joyful shout of the king of Psalm 118 for a God who is so good to us as his people. Later on in the Psalm the king says he will ‘recount the deeds of the LORD’. And I want to follow his lead and recount just some of the many things for which we are personally so thankful to God at this time:

We cannot wait to see more of you in person. We are so excited by what lies ahead.

Your brother in Christ,
Mickey Mantle
