We are saddened to learn that Fr. Branigan is being transferred to Drogheda although we are aware that he will be closer to his mother who has indifferent health. We wish him every blessing in his new ministry and thank him for his work here in Magherafelt for the last five years. There will be an opportunity for parishioners to say goodbye to Fr. Branigan prior to his departure.
Fr. Branigan will be replaced by a newly ordained priest Fr. Juan Jesus Gonzalez Borrallo from Spain.
