Dear Fr Tom and the parishioners of St. Kentigern and St. Edwards

When I think about My silver jubilee of priestly ordination which was celebrated on 13th February 2010 at St Kentigerns church, I remember that day with a sense of honour and admiration. It was so fabulous an event. For everything first and foremost I have to thank you Fr. Tom because when I just shared with you about my jubilee of ordination you were so pleased to organise this event in your parish and has taken all the initiative and work. I extend my sincere gratitude to you for everything you did and especially for the Papal blessing you have arranged which is very precious to me and the wonderful homily you made at the Jubilee Mass. In every respect it was a brilliant and memorable event.

I remember how overwhelming was the response from the part of our dear parishioners. Dear Parishioners,You have overloaded me with congratulations, prayers, precious gifts and jubilee wish cards and so on and so forth. It was really overwhelming. I will always remember you in my prayers. Thank you so much for your kind support and help in every little way.

I wish to thank all the thirteen priests who joined me in my Jubilee Mass and celebrations namely: Rev. Fathers: Tom Connolly, John Flynn, Ian Farrel, Thomas Parayadiyil, Babu Appadan, Peter Haverty, David Egan, Steven Parkinson, Christopher Dawson, Paddy Connolly, William,Morrough O'Brien. Thanks to all people for the fine speeches, beautiful Indian and Irish dances, hymns. The music in the church and in the social club was so nice. The church was decorated with flowers and the candles were well arranged and lit. I extend my thanks to all who worked behind this. I wish to thank you dear altar servers for your participaton. I extend my heartfelt thanks to all who helped me personally for the jubilee celebration especially Kevin for his contributions in the social club. I conclude with a sense of gratitude to God Almighty for His blessings in my priestly life.

Fr. George Cheeramkuzhy
