FR. GATES’ SILVER JUBILEE OF ORDINATION
I would like to thank everyone for their kindness and good wishes on the occasion of my Silver Jubilee. Thanks to the choir and all who helped at Mass and to Pat, Amanda, the committee and many volunteers who organised the wonderful event in the Parish Centre afterwards. Thank you to everyone who sent cards and gifts. I have been overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of the Parishioners of Magherafelt & Castledawson.
Every blessing, Fr. John
