A shout out of congratulations to Rev Dan Bollard and Rev Jim Murphy on their Golden Jubilee. Both natives of the parish Fr Dan and Fr Jim were ordained in St Mary’s Cathedral in 1972. Both marked their jubilees in their parishes in June and were joined by friends and family. A wonderful achievement for both and we wish them many more years of fruitful ministry in the Diocese.
Pictured are Fr Dan and Fr Jim with Rita and Richard Teehan – Rita’s brother Fr Michael Downey, a native of Conaghy, was ordained in 1972 for services in the diocese of Sacramento, USA.
