The Archbishop of Westminster has celebrated a Mass for diocesan priests celebrating significant anniversaries in the chapel of Archbishop’s House.
Canon Colin Davies and Fr Ulick Loring marked their 25th year in the priesthood along with Bishop John Sherrington, whilst Frs Austin Hart, Brian Reynolds and Canons Eddie Matthews and Vincent Berry all celebrated a half century of service to the diocese.
Each year those priests who celebrate ordination anniversaries of 25, 50 or 60 years are invited to join the Archbishop for a celebratory Mass (in his private chapel) and lunch
Also celebrating golden jubilees this year are, Fr Anthony Seeldrayers, Fr Dermot McGrath, Fr Thomas Kiernan and Fr Barry Ffrench.
We thank them for all their hard work, for their dedication to their vocation and to the people of this diocese.
