Goal : €4000
From 24 fantastic supporters

Our dear brother, uncle, grand uncle, cousin and friend Fr. Jim O’Donoghue, MHM died on April 14th 2020 in St James Hospital, Dublin.
As we mourn Jim’s passing and await the opportunity to celebrate his life, his family and friends wish to commemorate his memory with a contribution towards some touchstones in Jim’s ministry.
There are many hallmarks between his journey from Cahirciveen Co Kerry to his final posting in St Mary’s Parish, Belfast. Jim’s ministry included the Catholic University at St Louis, USA; Saint Anthony’s College, San Jose, Antique Province, and Iloilo, Philippines; Freshford College, Co Kilkenny; Missiehuis in Roosendaal, Netherlands and St Joseph’s College, Mill Hill, London.
It has been decided that all funds raised by this page should be in aid of St Mary’s Church, Belfast where Jim ministered from 2006 to 2016. Specifically for the preservation of the Grotto to Our Lady of Lourdes and the purchase of religious vestments for the benefit of the church.
The family and friends of Jim are forever grateful to him. Fr Jim’s personable nature, warmth, humility and humour will be missed. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis
