PERMANENT DEACON APPOINTED TO THE PARISH OF MAGHERAFELT & CASTLEDAWSON
Kevin Duffy, native of Clonoe, in his mid-40’s, has been appointed by Cardinal Brady to the Parish of Magherafelt & Castledawson. Kevin will be ordained in the Cathedral in Armagh on Sunday 14 September. A Permanent Deacon can carry out all the functions of a priest apart from the Consecration of Mass & Confession. Kevin is married to Mairead and has two young children. He will speak at all Masses over the summer to introduce himself and the Permanent Diaconate to parishioners. I am sure that you all will make him feel very welcome in our Parish.
THANK YOU! Our seminarian Damien Quigley has written some words of thanks to the Parish in recognition of the time he spent with us. His letter can be found online here https://www.magherafeltparish.org/parish-news
