THERE were special celebrations at The Church of The Sacred Heart in Ballyclare earlier this month as parishioners gathered to mark the 25th anniversary of Fr Eugene O’Hagan’s ordination.

A large crowd gathered at the Doagh Road church on July 6 to celebrate with the Parish Priest, thank him for his hard work over the years and wish him well for many more years in his role as Administrator of the Parish of Ballyclare and Ballygowan.

Fr Eugene was joined by members of The Church of The Sacred Heart, Ballyclare and the Church of The Holy Family near Larne as he marked his silver jubilee.
