AN Uddingston congregation has celebrated the ordination of a new priest.

Father Michael Kane was ordained at St John the Baptist Church in front of almost 1,000 worshippers, family and friends recently.

The poignant ceremony, which involved Bishop of Motherwell Joseph Devine welcoming Father Kane (25) into the priesthood, was also attended by dozens of priests and local politicians.
