Silver Jubilee

We had a lovely and memorable gathering in St James’ Church, Carracastle this Sunday afternoon.  It was a Parish Celebration to mark the Silver Jubilee of Parish Priest, Fr Michael Quinn.  We were all welcomed to what was a joyful and prayerful celebration of Eucharist.  Full credit to all involved and congratulations to Fr Michael at this special milestone in his ministry. It was clear to see he is very much at the heart of his Parish Community and they value his presence there. Ad Multos Annos Fr Michael.
