Happy 42nd Anniversary Fr Des!

On behalf of all of us at St. Kevin’s Parish, we wish Fr Des a Blessed 42nd Anniversary of his Ordination!

Dear Fr Des, we congratulate you on another milestone in your priestly journey and pray that the good Lord continues to shower his blessings and protection upon you year after year. May He sustain you in celebrating the Sacraments, in proclaiming the Gospel and in continuing to consecrate your life to Him for the good of the people entrusted to your care.

On this special day, we pray this special prayer for you…

St. Therese of Lisieux’s Prayer for Priests

O Jesus, eternal Priest,

keep your priests within the shelter of Your Sacred Heart,

where none may touch them.

Keep unstained their anointed hands,

which daily touch Your Sacred Body.

Keep unsullied their lips,

daily purpled with your Precious Blood.

Keep pure and unearthly their hearts,

sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood.

Let Your holy love surround them and

shield them from the world’s contagion.

Bless their labors with abundant fruit and

may the souls to whom they minister be their joy and consolation

here and in heaven their beautiful and everlasting crown.
