50th Anniversary Celebration Mass POSTPONED


Many parishioners would be aware of Father Whitty's 50th Anniversary of Priesthood on the 8th December. From among the 50 years of his priesthood, about 40 have been in our own parish of Camden.
After consultation with Father Whitty, a rather modest celebration was planned with the normal 9am Saturday Mass accompanied by a morning tea afterwards.
Unfortunately, Father lost sight from one eye almost two weeks ago and was soon after admitted to hospital where he remains.
It is not yet known whether his sight will return. He will remain in hospital under observation and undergoing further tests. Accordingly it has become necessary to postpone indefinitely the plans for this anniversary. Our prayers and thoughts reach out to Father Whitty at this time.
