We are delighted to welcome Fr Padraig as the newest member of our parish team.
We hope that Fr Padraig will feel at home here and we are fortunate to have him with us. Details of his pastoral responsibilities will be published next weekend.
Fr Padraig is originally from The Downs (Kinnegad) and he was ordained in 2004. He is no stranger to many in the parish, having served for three years as dean at Saint Finian's College and chaplain in the General Hospital. In 2007, he was appointed curate in Tullamore, where he took his first steps in parish ministry and had a very positive experience of priestly life.
We hope and pray that the Lord will bless Fr Padraig and that, through his good work, many of our parishioners may experience the tenderness and love of God for all.
"Truly, God is my salvation. I trust, I shall not fear. For the Lord is my strength, my song; he is my saviour" (Is. 12:2)
