The children of Moylagh who are making their first communion on Saturday will have the moment recorded for posterity by a German television crew.
The singing priest, Fr Ray Kelly, whose version of Hallelujah had over 34 million hits on YouTube will be officiating at the ceremony in his role as Parish Priest.
The German TV crew will film the ceremony, where Fr Kelly’s considerable singing talents will be put to good use!
Meanwhile, the YouTube video of Fr Ray singing Hallelujah has been taken down in what appears to be a copyright issue between Sony and YouTube.
Fr Kelly will be playing a hometown gig on Friday night when Oldcastle GFC host a Hallelujah Concert featuring Fr Ray and many other local artists at 8.30pm in the new Community Show Hall.
He also confirmed this week that negotiations are continuing with two music companies regarding a recording contract.
