Pope Benedict meeting Fr Jim Doherty on Wednesday 9th November at the Vatican. They both celebrated their 60th anniversaries as priests this year. Ad multos Annos… many more years.
Parishioners of St Robert’s in Morpeth and of St Pius X in Consett as well as all the family and friends of Fr Doherty are delighted that the Vicar of Christ and successor of St Peter has recognised the 60 years that Fr Jim has given in total unselfish service to the priesthood and to all the people he has been called to serve.
