Presentation to Fr. Mulvany
Last Saturday, 20th June, Fr. Mulvany celebrated the 50th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood.  This Sunday, the parish will mark this special occasion.  Earlier today, at the school's end-of-year Mass, the children made a presentation to Fr. Mulvany.  They presented him with a streetscape sketch of Glasson.  Sixth class pupil and altar server, Ben, is pictured presenting the sketch to Fr. Mulvany.  We thank Fr.
