Fr Frankie celebrates 10 years in the priesthood
Fr Frankie Mulgrew, the younger son of famous entertainer Jimmy Cricket, is celebrating 10 years in the priesthood.
Formerly a comedian like his father, Fr Frankie (pictured right) was ordained in 2013.
He is currently the parish priest at St James and All Souls Parish in Salford.
Not surprisingly considering his dad’s job, Frankie was captivated by a love of the stage as a child.
As a stand-up comedian, he was known as Frankie Doodle.
But he suffered with depression around the age of 18, which led him eventually to become a priest after realising the healing power of the Catholic religion.
To mark the special occasion, his parish posted a video on social media.
It features Fr Frankie answering some questions, including which one item does he always take with him when he goes out?
You can find out the answer by viewing the video here. It can also be found below this article.
An accompanying message said: “Today we celebrate Father Frankie’s 10th year anniversary of being a priest and in honour of that, here’s a little video of Father!
We couldn’t be prouder!
