Screen parishioners wish Fr. Jim a speedy recovery
PARISHIONERS IN SCREEN and Curracloe have joined in wishing Father Jim Fitzpatrick a speedy recovery from a recent health setback.
The popular and energetic curate has been prescribed rest by the doctors but is hoping to resume his duties in August.
Father Fitz arrived from the parish of Ferns four years ago and lost no time in organising the building of a new priest's house in Screen.
The 41 year old, who retains an interest in The Courtyard pub in Ferns, is normally a very busy man but is under medical instructions to take it easy for a few weeks.
While he is on sick leave, he is being replaced by Father Pascal Mendy from The Gambia in Africa.
