Knights of the Southern Cross, Emmaus branch, supplied the barbecue and parishioners provided a birthday cake decorated to reflect Mgr Rice’s love of golf.

A soccer match was won by the Our Lady of Dolours team.

Mgr Rice, who turned 90 on April 9, wrote to the Emmaus community, where he often assists parish priest Fr John Shanahan, thanking them for the Mass, papal blessing and many gifts and cards.
