Posted on: 27th July 2021

A Leeds parish priest is at the heart of history created by the city's Lord Mayor, who has chosen multiple chaplains from different faiths for his year of office, in acknowledgement of the city's diverse communities.

Father Darren Percival, Parish Priest of Cross Green and Richmond Hill, was invited to take on the role as Anglican Chaplain by Councillor Asghar Khan, who was elected Lord Mayor earlier this year, alongside Imam Omar Sheikh as Muslim Chaplain.

They will act as a focal point for religious groups in the city and as a bridge to its many diverse groups. More details here.
