Thank you from Fr Colum

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the community of St John the Baptist for their prayers and support as I prepared for my priestly ordination and also the cards and gifts. I am very grateful and humbled at the affection which you have treated me with since I arrived here in Uddingston. I am very happy to be appointed as the curate here to Fr Ivan and I would like to thank Bishop Toal for allowing me to continue to serve the community here in Uddingston.

Please continue to pray for me that I may be the good and holy priest that the Lord has called me to be and I will hold you all in my prayers.

God bless,
