Funeral arrangements for Fr Vincent Darragh

         Death of Father Vincent Darragh.

It is with great sadness that Ardboe Parish learns of the death of Fr. Vincent Darragh. Fr. Darragh gave much of his retirement in ministerial service to Ardboe Parish and its communities in Mullinahoe & Moortown.
Fr. Darragh’s remains will be reposing at St Patrick’s Church, Ballinderry, from 6.15pm-9pm on Saturday 14th March;
Requiem Mass on Sunday 15th March at 12.00 noon;
The Funeral Mass strictly private due to the ongoing Coronavirus situation.
A Mass in memory of Fr Darragh will be arranged at a later date so that his many friends and former parishioners can pay their respects and show the deep regard and esteem with which we all held Fr. Darragh.
We as a parish extend our deepest sympathy to his sister, his nieces and nephews, the extended family his friends and all former parishioners.

O God, Thou didst raise Thy servant, Fr. Vincent Darragh to the sacred priesthood of Jesus Christ, according to the Order of Melchisedech, giving him the sublime power to offer the Eternal Sacrifice,
to bring the Body and Blood of Thy Son Jesus Christ down upon the altar, and to absolve the sins of men in Thine own Holy Name.

We beseech Thee to reward his faithfulness and to forget his faults, admitting him speedily into Thy Holy Presence,
there to enjoy forever the recompense of his labours. This we ask through Jesus Christ Thy Son, our Lord.
