"Fr John and Fr Michael on the occasion of his farewell mass and Fr Michael’s induction as ADM on Saturday 26th August 2006."
After completing the prescribed nine-year term as parish priest in the parish of the Holy Child, Larkhill/Whitehall, I knew that, when I was leaving, I was marked for life! I am now resigned to the fact that there is no hope of recovery. I will never be the same again!
I believe that priests who have served there before me are all in the same predicament! But, let me hasten to add, these are marks which we all proudly wear as badges of honour – insignia with designs woven from the threads of wonderful experiences, warm relationships and happy memories.
I am, personally, deeply indebted to so many parishioners of Larkhill/Whitehall – and not forgetting Santry! - for their inspiring Christian witness and for their supportive affirmation to me in my ministry with them.
