It's all over but the crying, Father Ray Kelly's message USA Tour 2018

From the Official Facebook Page

...and may we say, congratulations on well over 40 thousand likes!

After all the excitement, remember you can always listen to the wise words and prayers of Fr Ray at his parish, link on the sideline (hint: he sings Saturdays and Sundays!):

Here is Father Ray's message and the Facebook post with pics:

What can I say about the last 16 days I’ve spent in the US of A, except that they’ve been nothing short of wonderful.
Firstly, to the people who helped organise the concerts in Denver, Hamden, Memphis, Cleveland and San Antonio, places I’ve never sung in before, thank you. I’ve made so many new friends in all of these cities i have been truly blown away.
Secondly, to the people who organise the Greeley and South Shore Festivals thank you for asking me back.
And to the people of Toledo (Maury Collins that means you) who had me sing for them for the THIRD time, I enjoyed it even more than when I sang there first!
My next step is to get back to work in my parish but I am also making to plans to make a new album and then who knows.
To everyone who made the effort to come to one of the concerts a huge thank you too. 🙏🏻

Graceland! Is it Elvis? or is it Father Ray Kelly!

Graceland! Memphis Tennessee, home of the King (Elvis Presley, for non US folk)



For a minute we thought we were listening to Elvis singing Glory Glory Hallelujah...but no! it was our dear Father Ray Kelly, in Memphis Tennessee, ready to give another awesome concert. Just two more to go and Fr Ray gets a well deserved rest. First Memphis, then on to The Alamo for an appropriate last stand.

https://www.irishmirror.ie/news/irish-news/pope-visit-ireland-itinerary-schedule-12682165

Mass at Phoenix Park, Dublin Ireland, is scheduled for 15:00




The entire article from Meath Chronicle:

Fr Ray Kelly to entertain crowds at Papal Mass
Story by Ann Casey
Friday, 24th August, 2018 12:52pm 
Fr Ray Kelly to entertain crowds at Papal Mass
Oldcastle's Fr Ray Kelly will entertain the crowds at the papal mass in the Phoenix Park on Sunday as well as concelebrating mass with Pope Francis.
The talented Fr Ray will perform for his biggest ever live audience, as he has been asked to join the entertainers who will entertain the crowds of half a million people both before and after the papal mass.
He is also delighted to be concelebrating the mass with Pope Francis.
"It is a great honour for me. I am absolutely delighted," he said.
Fr Ray said he would be singing songs people particularly like him to sing including 'Hallelujah' and 'Everybody Hurts,' the son he sung in the recent auditions for 'Britain's Got Talent.'
Some weeks back, Fr Ray had admitted to being diappointed not to have been asked to sing at the mass.
The Oldcastle PP is looking forward to travelling with his parishioners to the mass on Sunday.
"There is a busload going. There will be a lot of walking, but there will be a party atmosphere," he predicted.
Fr Ray has had a busy year, having competed on Britain's Got Talent earlier this year and wowing the judges, including Simon Cowell , who led a standing ovation .
Fr Ray sang REM’s ‘Everybody Hurts’ in the live audition and got four ‘yes’ votes from judges .
Fr Ray became an internet sensation when a video of him singing a version of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ at a wedding in Oldcastle in April 2014 was uploaded to the internet and went viral.
