Fr Anselm Kitbunchu finally arrived in Mullingar on Saturday week, having spent over a week in Frankfurt after his flight from there to Dublin was grounded due to volcanic ash cancellations.
Ordained thirteen years ago, Fr. Anselm will begin a two year post graduate course in Rome in the autumn before taking up the post of Spiritual Director at the National Seminary in Thailand.
Fr Anselm will stay in our parish until the middle of August. While in Mullingar, he will become familiar with projects in this diocese which support the Church in Thailand and Burma, including the twinning of Gainstown National School with a migrant school on the Thailand - Burma border.
