Fr. Criostóir, passed away on the 18th of October, while he was travelling with a pilgrimage group in Rome, the city he loved so much.
His last mass was offered in St. Peter's Basilica. It was a special and beautiful moment which will be always remembered by the pilgrims who were with him.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Fr. Criostóir's sister Ann and her family, his friends, parishoners and all who cared for him at this difficult time.

that often come my way.
The things I take for granted,
but I don't mention when I pray.
The unexpected courtesies,
the thoughtful kindly deeds.
The hand reached out to help us,
in times of sudden need.
Oh make us more aware dear God,
of little daily graces.
That come to us with sweet surprise,
from never dreamed of places.
