“I would like to take this opportunity to say a very sincere thank you to all the people of Rush parish who it has been my good fortune to work with in ministry for the past four years as pastoral worker. I really enjoyed my appointment to Rush parish and the company and support of so many faith-filled and inspiring people. I thank in particular Fr. Peter, Fr. Seamus, the Pastoral Council, the Mercy and FMM sisters, and the many people who volunteer in ministry in the service of others in the parish. Your support, kindness and welcome helped to ease my way in a first appointment in a new role, and I will take with me the memory of all the many positive and life-giving experiences we shared, as I take up my new appointment in Marino Parish. I also want to thank you for the presentation and gifts. May God bless you and your families and all in Rush parish.” Mary Kirk.
