The former rector of Magheragall Parish Church, Canon Alex Cheevers, who died in August, was honoured in the church on Sunday December 21.

At the service of Nine Lessons and Carols that evening, a special offering was held in memory of Canon Cheevers, with the money raised going to support the research work of Professor MF McMullan of Haematology at Queens’s University, Belfast.

This charity was selected by Canon Cheevers’ widow Maureen, who joined the service with her family. Her daughters Pauline and Joyce and their respective husbands Paul Connolly and Robin Mack, read at the service and her granddaughter Emma sang a solo – In the Bleak Midwinter.

Canon Cheevers was rector of Magheragall Parish from 1991 until his retirement in 2004.
