Fr Sandy - 25th Anniversary
of his Ordination to the priesthood
Joe McGee is the Provincial for the MSCs. He attended the MSC seminary with
Father Sandy and gave the homily. Fr Sandy was known at the seminary for
being meticulous in his preparation and doing all of his 'homework'. Several
the Sisters who used to be at Maryland Convent, including Sister Maura, attended
the Mass and the celebration in the hall afterwards.
Four Apple pies had been baked, each with a number of it - when the four
pies were lined up in the correct order they read '1989', the year of Fr
Sandy's Ordination. Fr Sandy made the first cut in a large celebration cake,
which was shared with everyone in the hall. Amongst his presents was a large
wrapped parcel containing a TV. It was a very joyous and emotional occasion..
Many of our parishioners attended, and these are a few of your photos,
for which many thanks.
