October 14 was a special day for Bob Campbell, a parishioner of the United Parish of Ballynure and Ballyeaston (Ballyclare), who celebrated his 100th birthday!
With the current covid-19 restrictions, visits to nursing homes and hospitals is limited, but Jayne Henry, Bob’s daughter and parishioner of St John’s, and her twin brother Tim had the opportunity to spend time celebrating with Bob.
The Bishop of Connor, the Rt Rev George Davison, sent a birthday card on behalf of the diocese wishing Bob all of God’s blessings on his special day.
The rector of Ballynure and Ballyeaston, the Rev Jonny Cambell-Smyth, encouraged people to remember to pray for families whose loved ones are in nursing homes at this time.
He said: “We thank God for Bob’s life and we pray that he will continue to know God’s strength and presence into the future.”
