Can I thank you all for the presentations of last weekend. It was a complete surprise and shock to me until a few weeks ago. As I said last Sunday, my years here in St. Joseph’s, Newbury, have been the most fulfilling of my priestly life, and I thank you all for making that so. Thank you all very much and God bless you all.

 Fr. Padraig Faughnan.
