On Sunday 18th September, Ronan Sheehan was ordained to the priesthood in St John The Baptist Church, Newcestown. This was an occasion of great joy for our Parish and school community. Fr Ronan was a former pupil of Bishop Galvin Central School. He attended here from 1999 to 2007. He recalls Mrs. Mary Canty preparing him well for his First Holy Communion and attending mass with the school on the First Friday. He also recalls the weekly visits by former parish priest Fr. Finbarr Crowley. He attended assembly in the school on Tuesday. He was welcomed wholeheartedly and we prayed for him as he begins his life as a priest for the diocese of Cork and Ross.
