People and Memories
Father Patrick Connolly
Though brought up in England, Fr Connolly is of Irish descent. He was ordained in 1948 and celebrated his fiftieth anniversary in 1998 by going on a pilgrimage to Fatima in Portugal, a present from the parish. He normally organises a parish pilgrimage once every two years, usually to Lourdes, but following his visit to Fatima, the next parish pilgrimage, planned for autumn 2002, will be to Fatima.
