Comic-turned-priest Fr Frankie’s inspiring story

Frankie Mulgrew, the younger son of comedian Jimmy Cricket, followed in his father’s footsteps in comedy – until a battle with depression ultimately led to him becoming a priest.

Frankie was captivated by a love of the stage and entertainment as a child and was a stand-up comedian known as Frankie Doodle.

But he suffered with depression around the age of 18 and it led him eventually to become a priest after realising the healing power of the Catholic religion.

Fr Mulgrew, 41, has told his inspiring story to the Lancashire Evening Post newspaper, where dad Jimmy has a monthly column.
