68 years of priestly service – Mgr O’Sullivan

Monsignor Basil O’Sullivan, parish priest at Our Lady of Perpetual Succour, Auchterarder, will celebrate 68 years since his ordination as a priest on 17th June.

As the Parish Priest in Dunblane from 1988 until 2021, he was he one of the first to arrive at Dunblane Primary School following the terrible attack on pupils and staff on 13th March 1996.

Sixteen years later in 2012 Mgr. O’Sullivan travelled to Sandy Hook in Connecticut to support Fr Bob Weiss following a similar school shooting there and featured in an award-winning Netflix documentary on the US tragedy.

We pray for Mgr Basil on this his 68th anniversary. Next month he celebrates his 92nd birthday, and is one of the oldest, if not the oldest working Parish Priest in the UK. May the Lord continue to bless him with good health and many graces.

Ad multos annos!
