We trust that they will find both spiritual and social fulfilment by participating actively in the work of the Order in their local communities
Saint Mary’s, Little Crosby, was the venue for a joyful celebration when five new members were installed during the 11.15am Mass at this beautiful and historic church on Sunday 3 December.
The Mass was arranged and celebrated by Father Dunstan Harrington, parish priest and chaplain to Liverpool province, and the installation coincided with our quarterly meeting in the parish hall.
We thank Fr Dunstan for his support and his participation in the installation of the five new brothers, whom we warmly welcome to the Order.
They are seen here on the front row of a group photo from the Mass, along with Fr Dunstan: (from left to right) Paul Duff (council 146) Anthony Bux (C493) Christopher Condliff (C584) David Brockway (C493) and David Evans (C146).
We trust that they will find both spiritual and social fulfilment by participating actively in the work of the Order in their local communities. They were presented with their purple collarettes by Bro Harry Welsh, the KSC’s supreme knight, who appears behind Fr Dunstan in the photo.
Fr Dunstan also kindly celebrated our annual memorial Mass for deceased members at his other church in the area – St William of York – on Wednesday 29 November at 7.30pm. This was preceded by a Rosary, with refreshments provided afterwards – and for those we thank Fr Dunstan too.
We also thank Deacon Paul Whitehead, chaplain to council 9, who was in Lourdes from 4 - 9 December and promised to remember all brothers, their families, and all associated with the Order, and also took with him our intentions – both written and in spirit – to the Grotto.
It is with great sadness that we record the loss of another longstanding and devoted member of the Order, Brian Mangan, who passed to his eternal reward on 2 December after 42 years of loving and loyal service. We extend our deepest sympathy to Brian’s family and friends. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
