The Ponsonby Herne Bay Parish was created in December 2017 when the separate parishes of Sacred Heart, Ponsonby and Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Herne Bay were melded.
Fr Rory Morrissey is parish priest.
There is further assistance for Masses from priests and students at the nearby Holy Cross Seminary, the neighbouring John Vianney Home for retired priests and priests who live in the area.
