Town Council give thanks to Father Michael

MEMBERS of Frodsham Town Council decided unanimously to write a letter of thanks to the Rev Michael Mills, Vicar of St Laurence’s Church, Frodsham since 1995, on his retirement.

The Rev Mills – known affectionately to many as “Father Michael” – is leaving Frodsham on his retirement.

A priest for more than 40 years, he moved to Frodsham some 23 years ago.

Two years ago, he became only the second individual to be honoured with the Freedom of Frodsham, in recognition of his long and much valued service to the town, not just as vicar but also in many other aspects of local community life – in particular as an active member of Frodsham Players, where he directed many plays.

Father Michael admits he will miss Frodsham which he describes as “a wonderful community, a great place to live and work in and a wonderful place to bring up children.”

The council’s letter will refer not just to his spiritual leadership but also his other work in the community.

    page. Im really impressed by your blog.
    Hey there, You’ve performed a fantastic job. I’ll definitely digg it and personally recommend to my friends.

    I am confident they’ll be benefited from this site.

  2. Please help me.

    Where is Michael now?

    My Mum has dementia.

    Michael was Vicar of St Bridget’s in Cinnamon Brow and was our rock when Dad died. Michael drove a Mini.

    Please email me or text 07895816909.

    May God keep you.

  3. Hello.

    I am writing to request that you pass the following message to Michael Mills.

    Hello Mr. Mills, it’s me, Greg 🙂

    I was so very happy to read about your retirement and that you look to be in good health. I’m imagine that the people of Frodsham are missing you dearly as did the people of Cinnamon Brow. At the same time I’m sure that they share lots of joy that one more place has been blessed with your presence.

    I recently took part in a life reflection exercise, part of which asked me to shortlist the people that have had the most influence on who I am today. The list is almost an exact split of people now in heaven and people that I am still very close to, except one person, Mr Mills! In fact it turned out to be quite a dampener to the experience as I realised that I hadn’t kept in touch with someone so dear, more so because I still think of you every time I see a bag of wine gums!

    Thank you so much for the principles that you taught me, the time you dedicated to me and the other kids every Friday at the rec, for training me how to play table tenis which has been so valuable along the years and most of all for introducing me through our religion. You were like a third parent to me.

    It would give me much joy to hear from you and therefore I include my contact details below.

    Yours faithfully,
    Greg Thomason
