Two young men are beginning their studies for the priesthood for the Archdiocese of Armagh. Brendan Marshall who is from the parish of Moneymore is a past pupil of St Pius X Secondary School in Magherafelt and also Holy Trinity College in Cookstown.  Brendan left school in 2012 and after a short time in College, he has been working for the last two years as a Clerical Officer with a Company in Cookstown.

Colm Hagan is from the parish of Drumcree and he’s a past pupil of St Patrick’s Grammar School, Armagh. After graduating in 2000 with a degree in Law and French from Queen’s University, Belfast, he then went to study a Masters in European Community Law in Bruges in Belgium. He spent a year studying at the Institute of Professional Legal Studies in Belfast and he was called to the Bar of Northern Ireland in 2003.

We remember both men as they enter seminary and we pray that God may bless and guide them on their paths in the future.
