I can hear him now at the altar saying "Any good news" as he looked out into the congregation. Rest in peace Father.

Father Maguire was a man of conviction and a true leader. He took us from the small mission church on the hill to a beautiful new church. He may have been a man of "one word", but one who inspired and lead his flock.

M Simon And his 'one word' was an inspiration for a lifetime of Faith, God rest his soul.
