40th anniversary celebrations at St Joseph's Church, Carbrain

A CELEBRATORY mass was held in St Joseph’s at the weekend to mark the church’s 40th anniversary.

Parishioners gathered for a special service at the Broomlands Road church, led by Father Harry McKay and several other priests and previous clergy who had served at the church.

Said Father McKay: “I am supported by my parishioners and they actually provide more support for me than I do for them!”

After the mass, parishioners and invited guests gathered for tea, cakes and sandwiches made by the pastoral parish council.
