Media Library - Baptism

Fr. Michael Morrissey O. Carm.

Fr. Michael is a native of Belfast and is no stranger to parish ministry, having served as parish priest in the Carmelite-run parish of Ballyhale, Co. Kilkenny in the 1980s and in Whitefriar Street in the 1990s. He joined the Order at the same time as Fr Jimmy and for many years they laboured together in Carmelite College, Moate. He was a member of the Terenure College community up to the time of his appointment here in 2006.  A man of considerable pastoral ability and many gifts, Fr Michael has engaged fully with all the activities of the parish and liaises with several groups. He is also blessed with a ‘green thumb’ and is responsible for the colourful flower beds in and around the presbytery and church.
