Sacristans

Westport: Peter Hastings and Frank Dolan, St Mary’s Church, Westport.

Peter Hastings and Frank Dolan work as Sacristan in St. Mary's, Westport. They welcome and look after visiting priests and others too. 

Drummin: Pádraig Gannon, St Mary’s Church, Drummin.

 

The Gannon family in Drummin has cared for the Church and its environs for many years.  Today Pádraig is the Sacristan but he has lots of back-up support and help from his family.

Lecanvey: John Cummins, St Patricks Church, Lecanvey and St. Patrick’s Oratory, Croagh Patrick.

John Cummins succeeded his late father, Jackie, as Sacristan in Lecanvey, but he has been associated with Lecanvey Church all his life.  In addition to this, John is the Curator of St. Patrick's Oratory at the summit of Croagh Patrick - a place he visits on an almost weekly basis during the year and more often during the summer months in preparation for the annual pilgrimage on Reek Sunday.
