Ordination of Father Mark O'Donnell


On Monday 1st July, Father Mark O'Donnell was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood on by Bishop Joseph Toal in his home Parish of St Thomas' Wishaw. Father Mark, the third new priest ordained for our Diocese this summer, studied for the priesthood at the Scots College in Rome. Father Mark will take up his appointment as Assistant Priest of St Joseph & St John Ogilvie's in Blantyre in September. We extend our prayers and congratulations to Father O'Donnell as he begins his priestly ministry in our Diocese.
