Requiem mass for late priest

Have your say

A LONG-SERVING priest is to be buried tomorrow following a requiem mass at the Sheffield church he served for more than 16 years.

Father Michael Killeen died in a Leeds nursing home last week, aged 90.

The mass is at St Francis of Assisi Church, Sandygate, where he was priest from 1982 to 1998, at 11am.

The mass will be followed by burial at Crookes Cemetery.

Father Kevin Thornton, his successor, said he expected a good turnout from Father Killeen’s former parishioners.
