|Fr. Pat Tait|
I ask you please to take a moment today and pray for the soul of Fr. Pat Tait, latterly pastor of Our Lady of Grace and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parishes of our diocese. Fr. Pat died this morning after a short battle with cancer. He was 66 years of age.
Fr. Pat had been the rector of St. Columbkille's Cathedral in Pembroke for many years and served as Diocesan Administrator during the months before the ordination of Bishop M. Mulhall as our local ordinary. His body will lay in state in the Cathedral on Wednesday February 19th from 3 pm til 7 pm and from 9:30 am to 10:30 am on Thursday February 20th. His funeral mass will then be celebrated at 11 am with +Mulhall presiding.
The Pembroke diocese has lost a great priest and brother of the presbyterate. May God grant him eternal rest in peace from his good labours.
