Fr David Russell’s 80th Birthday – UPDATED

Father David Russell has been our pilgrimage chaplain since 2000, having first walked with us back in 1976 (even earlier than I had originally thought!). Over the years he has become a non-walking member of our community whilst continuing to minister to our spiritual needs.

This year David turns 80, and we are holding a little party to mark the event on Saturday 21st January 2017.

The evening will begin with mass at 7:15pm (note later time) at St George’s RC church in Hangleton, Hove, Court Farm Rd and will be followed by refreshments in the church hall.People attending can if they wish stay overnight in the church hall.

The January committee meeting which had been scheduled for Sunday 15/01/2017 will now take place in the morning of Sunday 22/01/2017 – exact time to be advised  but probably from 9.00am.

If you intend to attend the celebration, please download and complete the attached form and return it to Ceri (details on the form).

  1. Wishing Fr David a very happy 80th birthday and many more years in his wonderful vocation. May Jesus’ love continue to shine in his heart and help him through any trials along his personal track towards Our Father in Heaven.
    We had a short but interesting conversation in Carlisle, Fr, on our approach to the cathedral. It was an eye-opener for me and I learned a good lesson from it. Thankyou.
    Too far from Glasgow unfortunately but I’ll be with you in spirit!

  2. Fr David, I hope you have a great day, that you continue to known God’s richest blessings on all you do. I’m sorry I can’t join you on this occasion,
    My best wishes to you and all the pilgrims,

  3. Dear Fr David, many congratulations on your birthday, and thank you for all your service to the pilgrimages over the years. Sorry we can’t be present in person on 21st but we hope you have a wonderful celebration. love from Claire, Nick and Euan Parsons
