Fr. Ray Milton has been appointed Parish Priest of Knockcroghery with effect from Friday 5th August. We would like to wish Fr. Ray the very best as he takes up his new appointment, and we thank him for his dedication and hard work in the parish and community of Drum over the past 15 years. He will continue to be involved with the schools in the parish. He will be dearly missed but fondly remembered. We extend a warm welcome to Fr. Michael McManus, a native of St. Coman’s Park, who moves from Castlerea to take up the position as Curate in Drum next Friday. We wish both Fr. Ray and Fr. Michael every success in their new appointments.
