Reverend Father Kevin A Lowry

A beautiful service was celebrated by Bishop Michael at St Joseph’s, Ansdell for Father Kevin. 64 priests and around 650 people from all walks of his life came to pay their last respects to a great, giving man. His sister Anne spoke about how she and the family were overwhelmed with the cards and messages of sympathy they have had over the last few weeks.  Afterwards we congregated at the Rugby Club to remember a true friend and confidant​​

The Choir

At the moment there is no choir due to Covid restrictions.
