    I have heard about the very special occasion this Friday in Sc Columbkilles
    I would like to attend the Service , and my brother, Hamish would like to come with me.
    I have very happy memorise of the 13 years when I was welcomed and accepted by the Clergy, the choir and all the parishioners. In particular I have ever such happy memories of the late Canon Gibbons, of Father Parkes and Father Ghislain But in particular of 'the Golden Jubilee man of the day', Father Hennessy.
    I really enjoyed my 13 years helping the Church by playing the magnificent organ at Requiem Masses and also at a few weddings
    I always felt 'part of the family' by everyone at St Columbkilles.
    I felt particularly honoured and thrilled to be asked to play at the reopening/rededication Service a few years ago.
    I send my most sincere and heartfelt congratulations to Father Hennessy on this very special occasion. My Late father , who was Minister at the West Parish Church in Rutherglen for 42 years ,celebrated his Golden Jubilee in the Service of our Lord in his 'own' Church in Rutherglen in 1984
    My brother and I were particularly touched that both Father Hennessy and Father Parkes , together with several St Columbkilles choir members, came to the funeral of our Mother who died 7 years ago , just 5 weeks before her 100th Birthday.
    We wish everyone at St Columbkilles a happy day on Friday to celebrated this momentous anniversary of their Priest
