It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our brother in Christ, Rev. Deacon Brendan McAllister. Archbishop Eamon, all the clergy, and the people of the diocese are united in prayer for Brendan, his wife Elizabeth, his daughter Anna, sons Joseph and Tom, grandchildren Dara, Oisín and Shaan, his sisters Marie and Sheila, brothers Kevin and Seamus and all the family. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen. Brendan is photographed here with Canon Francis Brown and Deacon Carlos as he assisted during Mass for the first time in Newry Cathedral earlier this year.
