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



Beautiful Stocking Stuffers!

Back in Medjugorje, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Days of Prayer and Giving Thanks

From the official Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/FatherRayKelly/

"I am back in Medjugorje this week for a few days, just a little bit of pay-back time in prayer and thanksgiving to Our Lord and his Mother Mary for all the blessings that I have received over the last year. Be assured my friends that I carry with me all your intentions at this Holy Shrine too. Thank you for all your friendship and support."

From the website: https://www.medjugorje.com/


The following is Our Lady of Medjugorje's September 25, 2017 monthly message for the world:

“Dear children! I am calling you to be generous in renunciation, fasting and prayer for all those who are in temptation, and are your brothers and sisters. In a special way I am imploring you to pray for priests and for all the consecrated, that they may love Jesus still more fervently; that the Holy Spirit may fill their hearts with joy; that they may witness Heaven and Heavenly mysteries. Many souls are in sin, because there are not those who sacrifice themselves and pray for their conversion. I am with you and am praying that your hearts may be filled with joy. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Back in the USA! September Around the Corner and so is Father Ray Kelly

Bit of News Coverage from Nebraska


By Marty Callahan

There have been many Kelly’s that have been part of Greeley area history the past century plus. But this year 
is a very special and unique visitor Kelly arriving in Greeley for the Irish Festival in September.
Fr. Ray Kelly, a Catholic priest from Ireland who gained international fame with his surprise rendition of Hallelujah performed during a wedding he was officiating, will be gracing the festival grounds on  September 16th.
Fr. Ray told the Citizen this week that he has never been to Nebraska. “I am so delighted and excited about being a guest performer at Greeley. It seems to be a festival that has grown year to year in the past decade.”
Before Fr. Ray arrives in Greeley he will be in concert in Boston, Vermont and Baltimore. He will then head to Toledo, Ohio to wrap up his tour.
Fr. Ray was ordained a priest in June of 1989 in his home parish/village of Tyrrellspass, Co Westmeath. This year he celebrated 28 years in priesthood. He comes from a musically inclined family and says that he almost feels guilty to be gaining so much attention as a singer as that wasn’t and isn’t his main goal in life. He explained, “This chance to share my music has come to my door.”
It was actually Fr. Ray’s tour manager that had heard of the growing Greeley Irish Festival and who made contact with the local festival committee.
Fr. Ray will not only be bringing his very famous singing voice, but his charisma to the festival as well. He stated,
“One of the things that I love to do while I am on tour is to meet and greet people during and after the shows. I love to have photos taken with them and enjoy signing my CD music. It is important to have time for people!”
Like many of the others that have graced the stage at the Greeley Irish Festival, a strong Irish brogue can be detected with Fr. Ray’s conversation. There is will be no question as to where this entertainer is from.
Fr. Ray will be tentatively performing from 3:20-3:50 in the afternoon and from 6:10- 6:45 in the Central Valley Auditorium.
He will also be providing music from 7:40-8 p.m. between two of the main stage groups on the main festival grounds.
Fr. Kelly reiterated that he is very happy to be coming to Greeley. “I very much look forward to being a part of and enjoying this great Irish Festival!”
