Father James Beresford entered his eternal rest this past weekend. Some years ago, Father Jim was Administrator at St. Patrick’s and St. John Bosco Parishes. A very warm and pastoral priest, Father Jim left a lasting impression wherever he was stationed. His dedication, his love for the people and his gentleness will be remembered for years to come. In the name of all parishioners I extend heartfelt sympathy to Archbishop Peter Hundt, his brother priests, his family, and friends. Father Beresford’s Funeral Mass will be celebrated at Mary Queen of the World Parish, Topsail Rd., on Wednesday July 15th at 11 AM. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.
Father Ray Earle
