In college, John and Carmen were like Lesley and mine's ma and da, and here we are all united after Carmen's ordination in Armagh Cathedral. Just Lesley Vet to get into a collar now ;-)
Carmen Hayes and William McCracken were ordained Deacon on Sunday 29th June, St Peter's Day. Carmen will now be Curate-Assistant in St Mark's Parish, Portadown, and William will be working in Camlough and Mullaglass Parishes.
Some of our college folks were remarking on the fact that both John and myself had managed to match our clerical shirts to the pinstripe on our suits!
