Anointing of my hands . . .

The bishop anoints the palms of the new priest's hands with the oil of chrism.

'The Father anointed our Lord Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. May Jesus preserve you to sanctify the Christian people and to offer sacrifice to God.'

Mass in thanksgiving - Friday 5th June at 7pm

followed by a reception in the parish hall.

Congratulations on your 10th year, Fr Miceal! I will be there. It is a reminder of how indebted we are to our priests.
