“The Son of Man Came Not To Be Served, But To Serve”
A special meeting of the tri-parish Councils recorded, on August 26th, a heartfelt vote of thanks to Frs Bogdan and Paul for their ministry here over the past five years.
In the name of our Faith Community we wish them good health and happiness in their new parishes of Kilcock and Newbridge and assure them of our prayers as they adjust to new surroundings and challenges! Appreciation was also recorded for the generosity of spirit shown by our Retired Priests who give so much to our parishes.
The meeting also expressed a warm welcome to Fr Liam Morgan who takes up duty here on Monday, 1st September.
At this time of transition let us pray that we will all be open to the Spirit’s guidance as we deepen our faith in Christ and each other.
