This scroll was presented to Fr Nesbitt on behalf of the many priests grateful for the role he played in their own vocations. In all there were thirty-seven signatories, evidence of the huge effect Father has had on the lives of those who know him, and of a truly fruitful vocation.
The text reads as follows:
We, the undersigned, wish to express to you our deep sense of gratitude for the example of priesthood which you have given us and which has inspired each of us to follow our own priestly vocations.
We are also deeply grateful for the kindness, patience and support which you have given to so many of us over the years and which has been such an encouragement and motivation in our lives.
