The Death of Father John Cargan

It is with deep sadness and a profound sense of loss that we announce the death of Fr John Cargan. A Castlerock man, Fr John attended St Columb's College, Derry, as a boarder. He was ordained a Priest in 1978. Serving as a diocesan priest he ministered to the parishes of Omagh, Our Lady of Lourdes Steelstown, Faughanvale, Maghera and Kilrea. Throughout his long life of service, Fr John was passionate about mission, the power of prayer and the good that the Church could do in the world.

Many people have benefitted from his wisdom over the years and we thank him for his distinguished contribution towards the life of the church here in the Diocese of Derry and particularly our own parish of Kilrea.

May he rest in peace.
