Father Christopher Morris was ordained in Our Lady of Good Aid Cathedral by Bishop Jospeph Toal last night.
It was the first ordination in the diocese of Motherwell for three years.
Bishop Toal offered his congratulations to the new priest and ‘all those who had accompanied him on his journey to the priesthood’.
Father Morris previously said that ‘a great blessing for me was growing up in a committed, catholic family attending a vibrant and happy parish community- St Bride’s, Cambuslang, within the Diocese of Motherwell. It was there I learned from so many faithful and committed people- laity and priests- the joy of the Gospel’.
