10th June 2017 – Ordination to Priesthood of Rev Evin O’Brien

Fr. Evin with His Parents and Bishop Buckley

Today in The Church of the Holy Cross, Mahon, Bishop John Buckley ordained Evin O’Brien to the priesthood for our Diocese. Evin was joined on this joyous occasion by family, friends and many of the priests of the diocese.  We congratulate his parents and family on this proud day for them.

The homily was preached by Rev. Dr. Padraig Corkery,  who served as Chaplain to Nagle College in Mahon, in the early days before their was even a parish Church there.  He is now is on the staff at St Patrick’s College, Maynooth where Evin studied for the priesthood.
We offer our congratulations and prayerful support to Evin as he begins his journey as a priest in Cork and Ross.
