INTO Mass for Rev. Thomas O'Connor

A mass in memory of Rev. Thomas O'Connor, Moulagow and New Jersey, was celebrated in the Church of Our Lady, Shrone by Fr. Michael O'Connor, assisted by Fr. Pat O'Donnell on Thursday, October 23rd 2014.

Fr. Thomas, who died in 2008 gave a sum of $20,000 to INTO's benevolent fund.

His father, also named Thomas, taught in Shrone NS from 1917 - 1930. He died suddenly in December 1930, leaving a wife and five young children.

The INTO benevolent fund was a great help to the family. Four of the five children received second level education. Two boys, Michael and Thomas, were ordained priests. Fr. Michael served as a priest in Liverpool and the Isle of Man. Fr. Thomas spent his whole ministry in the Diocese of Trenton, U.S.A.

A plaque was unveiled by Mr. Séan McMahon, President of the INTO. This will be erected at the entrance to Shrone NS.

Noel Ward, INTO Treasurer, and Ann Horan, BFC for District XIII were in attendance. INTO members from the Rathmore Branch, both past and present, also attended, as well as relatives of the O'Connor family.

Afterwards, everyone attended a reception in the Top of the Hill bar.
