Appointment of Fr Fachtna McCarthy as Administrator of St Mary’s


In a letter dated 19 December Archbishop Diarmuid confirmed the appointment of Fr Fachtna McCarthy as Administrator of  St Mary’s, Haddington Road, effective from 1st January. Clearly not a man to waste time, Fr Fachtna will lead us into the New Year, celebrating mass in St Mary’s for the first time on New Year’s Day. We are delighted to welcome Fr Fachtna as our new pastor and  he will have our full support in a very challenging task. He comes to us at a very exciting time in our church life, as  we feel a resurgence of enthusiasm and hope and the beginning of an opening up of new possibilities for mission and evangelisation in our modern world.  He will bring much experience, particularly in the area of faith formation and we look forward to working with him.   Fáilte
