Diego Martin/Petit Valley parishioner Greer Lum Lock (nee Kelly) remembers Fr Dermot Brennan OP
I first met Fr Dermot Brennan, OP when I was working as a nurse at Port of Spain General Hospital in 1972. Fr Dermot was the hospital chaplain. He endeared himself to both patients and staff with his genuine, warm, caring and humble disposition. He was always ready for a good laugh. He was a family man—I’m sure the favourite uncle of his nieces and nephews.
Fr Brennan was attached to the Rosary parish and remained lifelong friends with some members of the choir. He was so loved and appreciated by the nurses and staff that a few persons named their children ‘Dermot’. He performed many of their marriages and was invited back to do the marriages of some of their children.
