Fr. David celebrates Golden Jubilee

Fr. David Barry P.P. from Buttevant will celebrate the anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood in his parish in Birmingham, UK, this weekend. Unfortunately, the pandemic does not allow him to travel home to celebrate at St. Mary’s Church in Buttevant, where he was ordained 50 years ago, but he offered “sincere gratitude to all who have supported me throughout this journey and continue to do so through prayer and goodwill.”
“Mindful of sacrifices made by my family to enable my vocation, my celebration Mass will remember all my family, my parents Paddy and Julia, and brother-in-law Paddy (RIP), and give thanks for the wonderful gift of lifelong friendships along the journey. Sincere gratitude and blessings to you all.”
