Fr Rory was ordained to the priesthood in June 1997 and celebrated the Silver Jubilee of his Ordination in June 2022.  A special Mass was con-celebrated in the Sacred Heart Church on Sunday 12th June 2022 – celebrants Fr Shem Furlong, Fr Rory Nolan and Fr Seamus Whelan (on holidays from his post in Argentina).  At the end of the Mass, Fr Rory sang with the children’s choir, then he greeted people as they left the Church.  This was followed by a get-together in the local Town Hall where tea, sandwiches and all sorts of nice things were served.  Lots of photos were taken and we got to meet and greet Fr Rory’s mother and several other members of the Nolan family, who were there to celebrate the joyous occasion.
