Fr Michael Hollings is now a Catholic priest. During the War he served in the Cold-stream Guards and won the Military Cross. It was only later, in Palestine, that he felt the call to the ministry, since when he has worked amidst the tension of several mixed communities: in the heart of Soho, in Oxford, and amongst the immigrant population of Southall.
