On Friday, September 25th, three members of our Esker Redemptorist Community celebrated sixty years of their Ordination to the Priesthood, on Sept. 25, 1960. They are Fr. John Corbett C.Ss.R., a native of Athenry: Fr. Phil Hearty C.Ss.R., a native of Dundalk, and Fr. Richard Tobin C.Ss.R., a native of Dublin.
Fr. John spent all of his priestly life in Ireland. Fr. Phil spent many years in Brazil, and has served in the parish of Lusmagh in the Clonfert diocese for the past fourteen years, until recently. Fr. Richard spent some early years in the Philippines, and has worked as a parish missioner in most parts of Ireland.
We wish them every blessing on this great milestone in their service of the people of God, and wish them every blessing and health in the years ahead. Rath Dé oath!
