Hole in one for priesthood

GOLFING priests in Wales have helped to raise £5,000 for training young men for the priesthood.

Sixteen priests were amongst 74 afficionados of the fairway who teed off this week at a special sponsored golf competition held by the Radyr Golf Club in Cardiff. They raised money for priestly training programmes in Cardiff Archdiocese and Menevia Diocese.

The competition was started by Arty O'Brien, a golf-mad Grand Knight of St Columba, who came up with the idea five years ago. shortly before he died. The sought-after winner's cup now bears his name.

Coming up to par to win the cup for this year was Fr Colin Henneberry, parish priest of Gurnos, Methyr.

Another prize-winner was 23year-old Br Steven Sani, a Rosminian who started playing golf only a year ago.

Fittingly, another of the prizes was won by Fr Martin Breen of Frimley. Surrey, who was a fellow student.

Archbishop Ward of Cardiff was on hand to accept the cheque for £5,000, though it is expected that this will be topped up when outstanding sponsorship money is collected.
