Promoting Sobriety for a better society.
Fr. Jim Naughton, for many years the spiritual director of the Pioneer Association in Scotland, has died recently. Requiem Mass will be celebrated, followed by burial, at the Church of St. Joseph, Kilclarin, Feakle, Co. Clare on Friday December 30th 2016 at 11.30am. Our sympathies are with his family, the priests of the Motherwell Diocese and the Pioneers of Scotland.
