65th Jubilee of Ordination


Dear Parishioners  : Many thanks  for celebrating with me the 65th anniversary of my ordination which took place in All Hallows, Dublin, on June 17, 1956.   I have to thank everyone who helped in any way in the celebration and all who came —members  of the parish council, organisers, helpers children, and all who attended.   A special word of thanks to Bishop Stephen and the clergy.   I want to give thanks for all the prayers, cards and donations received and for the Spiritual Bouquet.   When one reaches a certain age, prayers are especially welcomed.

I can only repeat what I said at the Mass –I thank God for bringing me to this beautiful Diocese of Dunkeld; and for the support and help I received over 65 years from the clergy of the Diocese, bishops and priests alike.  Also for the unstinted love and support I received from the parishioners in the various parishes in which I served.   This is true   especially of the Holy Family Parish which I have had the privilege of serving for over 32 years.  The parishioners  are, after all, the People of God and this was proved to me over and over again in the kindness and love that has been shown to me over all these years .

I can only pray that the Lord will reward with his choicest graces and blessings all who have been good to me since I arrived in the Diocese of Dunkeld in July, 1956.
