The Parish Team

Natalie Smith - Catechetical Coordinator
 

I am an Anglo Indian, born in Madras (now Chennai), South India many moons ago, and immigrated to the United Kingdom in April 1974 along with my parents and two sisters. I was educated in Cranford School and then on to Hounslow Borough College before venturing into the employment market. My first position was in the accounts department in a company called HML Engineering. That didn’t last long and I moved into a truck rental company called Wincanton. But the lure of travel beckoned and I eventually joined British Airways.

 

I spent 18 memorable years there enjoying every minute of it, not just of the travel, but of the work and the people as well. In July 2004 (to my amazement!), I was offered the position of Catechetical Coordinator in this parish and I haven’t looked back since. I do enjoy the various aspects of the role which includes serving people, working with new technology (such as this website) and exploring the creative side of my nature. I particularly appreciate the opportunity this vocation offers to deepen my faith.
