Fr Ray Coyle retired recently after 20 years as priest at Our Lady and St John the Baptist Church and after 40 years as a priest.

Fr Ray, his family, friends and parishioners enjoyed a special night at Ellon Golf Club on April 9 that included a ‘This is Your Life’ presentation with photographs, memories and people from his past which he and those attending enjoyed very much.

Bishop Hugh Gilbert OSB, Diocese of Aberdeen attended and gave a very nice farewell speech for Fr Ray.
