I was Rector of St. Andrew's Church on Victoria Park from 1957 to 1965. During that time the Mazurek family were members of the Church. One of my recollections is that Philip would grill the children on the contents of my sermons each week! I have fond memories of my pastoral relationship with Philip, Lydia and the children. My sympathy and best wishes on the death of Lydia
