Mass of Thanksgiving
On Thursday 2nd July, the day after his Ordination, Father James Travers celebrated his first Mass, a Mass of Thanksgiving, in Sacred Heart Church.
Around 15 priests concelebrated at this Mass with the music being provided by The Sacred Heart Parish Choir and guitarists Donna & Debbie from St Gerard's Parish. The Altar Servers were made up of servers from both Sacred Heart & St Gerard's Parishes.
Monsignor Thomas Millar, Parish Priest of Motherwell Cathedral, gave the sermon at this Mass. Father James served with Mgr Millar during his time of placement in Motherwell Cathedral.
