Dear Parishioners,
A brief message as I begin my ministry as Parish Priest in Kill, Ardclough & Johnstown.  I am very happy to have been appointed recently as Parish Priest to this worderful parish. My belongings are nearly unpacked and I am beginning to settle in and over the coming weeks and months I look forward to getting to know the people of the parish.
Fr Willie and Fr Matt have set a high standard as they served this vibrant Christian community over the years and with God’s blessing, I hope to do the same.
I would particularly like to thank Fr Willie for making my transition to this parish, a gentle one and my prayer for him is that the Lord will bless him with a very happy and healthy retirement.
Fr Joe O’Neill P.P
