Fr Seamus McEntee, Ordained 3rd June 2014

Rathcoole Community Centre, Saturday 7 June 2014
Fr Seamus and Fr Enda
The United Parishes of Saggart and Newcastle are justly proud of local man, Seamus McEntee, who was ordained in the Pro-Cathedral on Tuesday, 3rd June, the only ordination for Dublin this year. The event made the news headlines of the following day, with a photo in the Irish Times and a report in the Irish Independent.  Parishioners might like to read Archbishop Martin's homily.

Fr Seamus will celebrate the Colmanstown cemetery Mass at 7.30 p.m., Monday 30th June, in St Finian's,  Newcastle. What a moving occasion that is likely to be, a man saying Mass for those lying in the graveyard near his home, a graveyard dating from medieval times.  [Note Correction here.]

The writer made it to the Mass of Thanksgiving in the Church of the Holy Family, Rathcoole, on Saturday 7th.  Here are some photos from the reception held afterwards in the Community Centre (and many thanks to the organizers, including members of the St Joseph's Young Priests' Society).
The photos can be seen here (youtube).
