On Sunday 13th July 2014 the parishioners of Holy Trinity joined Helmut Wosnitza in thanking God for reaching his 90th Birthday, which he celebrates on Monday 14th July. On Saturday evening his family had arranged a surprise celebration in the church hall and at Sunday morning Mass we were joined by Fr Holmes, our retired parish priest, when we offered Mass for Helmut's intentions. Parishioner, Maurice Slattery spoke for us all in making the presentation to Helmut of a Papal Blessing from Pope Franicis. Mairi MacPherson presented a beautiful bunch of flowers and Timothy Birrell the birthday card we had all signed. He also received the good wishes from our retired bishop, Bishop Taylor, and two other former parish priests; Canon Pat Keegans and Fr Gerard Donnelly. Helmut was delighted with all the fuss and was embarassed at Maurices' kind words (click here to read them). The ladies of the parish had laid on a wonderful spread for us all to enjoy afterwards.The photograph shows just some of Helmut's family and fellow parishioners who shared the happy occasion.
