New Year message from Father Ray Kelly

Happy 2018 everyone!

This beautiful message from the official Facebook Page:

2018 is almost upon us, so as we begin another new year, we take this opportunity that this new beginning affords all of us, as the limited and imperfect human beings that we are, to make another effort to reach whatever stage of perfection or imperfection that, with God’s help it is in us to reach.
Thank you all my friends for journeying with me during 2017 and, may I wish you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR
Father Ray

A Beautiful Christmas Message from Father Ray Kelly

It's REALLY looking a lot like Christmas!


Here are some snowy pictures from Oldcastle, the beautiful St Brigid's Church, the new walking paths and Father Ray with his two best friends. Very Christmassy for sure!


From the Facebook Page:
”It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas“ It certainly is, I love Christmas, the shopping, the glitter, the smiles and laughter as everyone attends to their bits and pieces in preparation for the holiday. It’s such a frenzy, but it all gets done. Nostalgia, too can take over as we reflect on the highs and lows, the gains and the losses of the year. 2017 has been a great year for me as I got the opportunity to perform concerts at home and in Boston, Montpelier, Baltimore, Greeley, Nebraska, Toledo, CincinnattI, San Francisco, Orlando and visited Chicago
I met so many wonderful people and made a huge amount of friends. A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU FOR COMING OUT TO MEET AND GREET ME. A big thank you also to all who made my 5 week tour, and concerts possible. THANK YOU. I look forward to meeting many of you again in 2018
After my annual week in October in Medjugorje I flew directly to Vienna for a fundraising concert to aid Aids research. On the Saturday of the concert while out on a walking tour of the city my left foot slipped off the footpath and I knew damage was done. Yes a small fracture on my left foot. So after nearly 7 weeks hopping around and wearing an awkward looking boot, my foot is just about better.
So only God knows what is in store for any of us in 2018
My wish for all of you my friends is that the New Year will be one of good health and happiness.
MAY THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS BRING YOU PEACE
THE GLADNESS OF CHRISTMAS GIVE YOU HOPE
THE WARMTH OF CHRISTMAS GRANT YOU LOVE
My love to you all, MERRY CHRISTMAS 
Fr Ray and Biddy and Buddy
