"Thank you, Fr Michael"
As he leaves our parish today (Sunday 20 September), we send our very best wishes to Fr Michael Kilmartin who has served as curate in Mullingar since February 1998.
He has been appointed Parish Priest of Longwood and Killyon in Co. Meath.
We say “thank you” to Fr Michael for his ministry in our parish for over 17 years, not least of all his work in the schools and his care of the sick and elderly. Fr Michael has informed and inspired many people by his teaching of the Scriptures, his thoughtful homilies, his participation in pilgrimages and enthusiasm for the faith history of our parish and community. We congratulate him on his appointment to Longwood, where his administrative skills and talents with people will be very much appreciated.
All of us in Cathedral House and his many friends in the parish will miss Fr Michael very much and we assure him of our prayers at this new moment in his life.
