Thank You

The Bartley Family would like to thank you so much for the wonderful celebrations on Kevin’s silver jubilee. The Church was beautifully decorated for the occasion, the choirs and musicians were also wonderful so to all that prepared and took part in the service. We never expected to be piped into the church while still alive so our thanks to Darragh. To all who helped in so many ways, our sincere thanks. To the wonderful people who prepared and presented such a lovely buffet. Thanks for the beautifully decorated cake which we have been enjoying with cups of tea during the week. Thank you to one and all for everything and may God always Bless the parish at St. Maur’s.

Fr Kevin would also like to express his appreciation and thank you for being so thoughtful in joining him to celebrate his Silver Jubilee.
