Thank You

A sincere Thank You from the Doheny Family and Friends of Fr Kevin Doheny to all who attended the Mass to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the foundation of Vita and Fr Kevin’s life and work. The afternoon was only possible with the huge ongoing support from local communities and neighbours who assisted in setting up, stewarding and provision and serving of refreshments. We extend our Thanks and appreciation to one and all.
