Today Very Rev. Fr Michael Mary, F.SS.R. celebrates 35 years as a priest of God. We thank him for those many years of service to the Church, to souls and especially to us, the Congregation of the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer.
Father celebrated Holy Mass this morning in the chapel in Papa Stronsay.
35 years ago today this young Deacon knelt before his bishop to receive the the Holy priesthood from his hands, in an unbroken line back to St. Peter himself! Thank you Father for this courageous sacrifice of yourself to and for the Church.
May God bless you Father and grant you many more years for the exercise of your sacred ministry. Thank you on behalf of all those whose souls you have helped towards their eternal salvation!
