Our brother Damian Casey OFM was ordained a priest in Adam and Eve’s Church, Franciscan Friary, Dublin on Saturday 24th April. Archbishop Dermot Farrell officiated at his first ordination when ordaining Damian.
The ceremony took place according to the present Covid restrictions with only immediate family and some friars present. However, this did not limit the joyful spirit of the happy event.
Many people throughout the world participated in the celebration online.
Damian is a native of Waterford city and was a school principal before joining the Franciscan Order. He is a member of the Ennis fraternity and has ministered as deacon in the local parish in recent months.
We pray that Fr Damian’s priestly ministry will bring great blessings to the Lord’s people. Ad multos annos!
