Farewell for Fr. Derek
Saturday, May 25th 2019

FR. DEREK’S FAREWELL MASS

All are welcome to join Fr Derek on Saturday, 15th June at 6pm in Ashbourne Church as our Parish prepares to say farewell to him.  We express our sincere thanks to him for his dedicated service, commitment and leadership throughout his ministry.  We will always be grateful to him for enriching the lives of the people of our parish and also for his guidance & assistance with the various groups and communities within the area.  We offer our appreciation to him as pastor and a friend since he was appointed as Curate for the parish in 2007 and Parish Priest in 2013.  We wish him the every blessing in his new appointment as Administrator in Mullingar Parish and Episcopal Vicar for Pastoral Planning and Development for the Diocese of Meath, which he commences on the 17th June.  A reception with refreshments will take place in the Parish Hall after this Mass of Farewell.  As Bishop Tom visits our parish on Sunday 16th May, Fr. Derek will formally say farewell at all Masses the weekend of 8th/9th June.
