Canon Reuben’s Diamond Jubilee

Canon Reuben Butler was ordained a priest on 17th June 1956. For the last sixty years he has served in the diocese of Killaloe at St. Flannan’s College, Ennis, and here in Newmarket on Fergus. This commitment and service is well worth celebrating and so we are planning a Mass of Thanksgiving in Newmarket Church on Saturday June 25th at 7.30pm. Refreshments will be served in the community hall after Mass. We would like this to be a real parish occasion when people will have an opportunity to meet Canon Reuben and celebrate the gift that he is to our community. For that evening we have decided to cancel the 6.30pm Mass in the Wells and invite all to gather for the Mass of Thanksgiving in Newmarket.
