The Rev Adrian Halligan was introduced as Curate–in–Charge of the Parishes of Craigs, Dunaghy and Killagan, Diocese of Connor, at a service in Craigs Parish Church, Cullybackey, on September 12.

The service was led by the Rural Dean, the Rev David Ferguson, and the Ven Paul Dundas, Archdeacon of Dalriada. The preacher was the Very Rev John Bond, former Dean of Connor and a former rector of St Patrick’s, Broughshane.

Adrian was Curate in Broughshane during his transfer training from Non–Stipendiary Ministry to Stipend Ministry.

He was ordained a Deacon in January 2011 in All Saints’ Parish Church, Antrim, where he served as Curate and was also ordained there as Priest in November 2011. He did his first curacy in Antrim before moving to Skerry, Rathcavan and Newtowncrommelin, in Broughshane, for three years.

Adrian, a former telecommunications engineer, is married to Wendy and they have one daughter, Abigail.

Following the well–attended service of introduction refreshments were served in Craigs Parish Church Hall.
