Sharing with a champion

The Residents in Raheny have just enjoyed a few days of prayer and reflection led by Father Jude McKenna, Capuchin Father. Father spent 50 years of his priestly life in Zambia and returned to Ireland three years ago.

Fr. Jude McKenna a former boxer for Ireland, born in Ballymoney, Co. Antrim became known and respected as Fr. Judo for the many years he spent dedicated to introducing judo as a sport to Zambia and managing the Zambian national judo team.

Here in Raheny he was greatly appreciated by the residents for his openness and availabilty. His one to one friendly approach was a help for all. It was a prayerful and happy time spent together. Thank you Father.
