Thank You & Best Wishes


Sincere Thanks and Best Wishes – In the recent Diocesan Appointments Bishop McKeown has appointed Fr Chris Ferguson as Vocations Director and Priest in Residence at the parish of Three Patrons (Carnhill).

Fr Chris served in the Waterside and Strathfoyle parishes for the past eleven years as Hospital chaplain and curate.  In that period of time he gave himself unsparingly to all aspects of parish and hospital life.

Change always presents a challenge but it is also an opportunity, so we thank Fr Chris for his work here over the past eleven years and wish him well in his new appointment, especially in his role encouraging Vocations to priesthood and Religious Life.

Regrettably, Fr Chris has not been replaced. As a result, Fr Sean O’Donnell has been nominated as chaplain to the Altnagelvin Group of Hospitals while continuing his parish work.
