Condolence & Memory Journal

I met Father McHugh at Nativety Church over 30 years ago with my Aunt Mary. His sermons, the way he would speak to you, he was without a doubt a saint. Thank you Lord for sending us such a devout priest. I remember Father pacing the church with his rosary. His love for Jesus and Mary was inspiring. Now he is with them forever. God Bless you Father McHugh

Lovely to read tributes to P.J from those who knew and loved him in America. He was a great character and possibly the most devout man I've ever met in my life. He is resting now with his parents Patrick and Delia, sister Maisie, brothers Cathal and Mikie, sisters-in-law Eva, Nan and Noreen, brother-in-law Michael, nephews Ian and Kevin, and many old friends! We know he is reminiscing on all the family stories, as only he could tell them! God Bless P.J. xx
