Ged Killen Rutherglen and Hamilton West
I was delighted to have the opportunity to table a motion in Parliament recently in recognition of Father Hennessy’s golden jubilee.
His 50 years of unwavering service have seen Father Hennessy work all over Scotland and even to remote areas of Peru as part of his service and dedication to the aims and values of the Church.
Father Hennessy’s first appointment was to St Columbkille’s Parish in 1969, and he has taken part in countless weddings, baptisms and First Holy Communion services across South Lanarkshire since, as well as being a source of comfort during periods of sickness and at funerals.
I congratulate Father Pat on his remarkable achievements, he is a stalwart of the local community and I know everyone will want to join me in wishing him well as he continues his work in Rutherglen.
