It is with sadness that we have learned of the death of Canon Dermot Jameson who served all of his ordained ministry in the Diocese of Down and Dromore.
Canon Jameson was ordained in 1950 and served two curacies – Seagoe (1950– 53) and Holywood (1953–57). Following his curacies, he served as Incumbent in three parishes – Kilkeel from 1957–1962, Donaghcloney from 1962–1979 and lastly Kilbroney from 1979 until his retirement in 1993. He celebrated the 70th anniversary of his ordination on Sunday 18 October 2020.
In retirement Dermot took a keen interest in the work of the Kilbroney Centre, the wider work of the diocese and as a keen ecumenist, all his life continued to build relationships widely. Dermot was a faithful friend to many, and a will be greatly missed not least by Sheila his children and the wider family.
Our prayers and sincere condolences go to Canon Jameson’s widow Sheila and the family circle.
