Father Jon Ravensdale

Fr Jon was born in London in the second half of the 1950’s, where he grew up and was educated. Before his ordination in the Anglican Church in 1994, Fr Jon worked, first in retail management and then in forensic science, specialising in bio-kinetics.


He was received into the Catholic Church, through the newly erected ‘Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham’. Following his ordination as a Catholic priest in 2011 Fr Jon was appointed as Parish Priest to St John Payne, where he continues to serve.
