Brian Connell, senior altar server at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, died November 23 at the age of 64. His daughter Candace delivered the eulogy at the November 28 Funeral Mass where he served.
It is a difficult to stand before you and attempt to honour my father in words. It is not an easy task to capture his true essence in a speech but I will try.
He retired as a corporal after 39 years in the police service and dedicated 59 years of his life serving as an altar server.
