ORDINATION – On Sunday the 10th September at 3:00pm Deacon Stephen Ward was ordained priest by Bishop McKeown at a ceremony in Killyclogher, Omagh. Stephen, who served as a deacon for 8 months in this parish, celebrated Mass in St Columb’s Church on Tuesday evening at 7:30pm. After Mass he imparted his priestly blessing on those who wished to receive it.

We wish Stephen every grace and blessing in his future ministry and we ask you to keep him in your thoughts and prayers.


We pray also for our two seminarians who have completed their introductory year and will begin their formal studies in Rome and Maynooth this month, and for the four men who are applying to study for the diocese this year
