I wish to thank, from the bottom of my heart, each and all of you for your warm welcome and kindness shown to me over the past three years. I am especially grateful for the many prayers, good wishes, and gifts which I have received from you. It was my privilege to share your faith and especially to participate in the sacraments with you and your children. I will continue to hold all of you in my heart and prayers because you have added so much to my faith and enriched my life. I will offer a mass for your intentions every Sunday in Naas. Fr PJ Madden.
