It is with great sadness we say goodbye to Canon Martin and we wish him all the best in his new appointment as Parish Priest of Carrignavar.
During his four year stay with us, having already served in the parish many years previously, he again endeared himself to our community with his engaging style, wit and humour and in particular with his concern for the old and sick.
Many people often commented on his homilies which were always interesting, very relevant and thought provoking. They made people sit up and think about their faith and their relationship with God – that, by any yardstick is a success in itself. Also his support and empathy for bereaved families is appreciated by many of us.
As he leaves we thank him for his generosity of spirit, for sharing his Christian Faith and for the happy memories he leaves behind.
