Having served the Parish of Maghera as Sacristan in Our Lady of the Assumption church for over 28 years, I retired from my position on 17 December 2015 at the young age of 73. I wish to extend my sincere thanks to Fr Jim and Fr Colin and all those associated with the Parish Centre& Shop, the Parochial House office staff and the various Parish Committees and choirs.
As there are too many to mention individually, I trust you will accept this message as a sincere acknowledgement and heartfelt thanks for your valuable and much appreciated support, guidance and friendships over the years. Many thanks also for your beautiful cards and generous gifts on the occasion of my retirement.
Gerry Connolly, retired Sacristan.
