Rev. michael brown 

Michael Brown was born in Chryston on 9th January 1964 and attended St Ambrose’s High School, Coatbridge.


After employment, he prepared for the Priesthood at Chesters and Scotus Colleges, Bearsden.


He was ordained to the Priesthood on 24th June 1998 by Bishop Joseph Devine, Bishop of Motherwell, in his home Parish of St Barbara’s, Muirhead.


Following his ordination, Father Brown’s first appointment was as Assistant Priest of St Bride’s, East Kilbride (1998-2003). He then served as an Army Chaplain before returning to the Diocese in 2005 when he was appointed Assistant Priest of Sacred Heart, Bellshill (2005-2011).

During his time in Sacred Heart he also served as Chaplain of Cardinal Newman High School and continued to serve in this role whilst in St Gerard’s.


After six years in Sacred Heart Parish, Father Brown came to serve in the other end of the town when he was appointed Parish Priest of St Gerard’s in March 2011.


He remained parish priest for only two and a half years – the shortest time for any of our parish priests – when he was appointed Parish Priest of St Brendan’s, Motherwell, and Chaplain of Wishaw General Hospital in September 2013.


Today, Father Brown continues to serve as Parish Priest of Holy Family.
