Albany--  An Albany priest celebrates four decades in the ministry.

Monday night, members of St. Teresa's Catholic Church celebrated and gave thanks for Reverend Finbarr Stanton.

Father Stanton came to Albany in August of 1989 but was called to the priesthood in 1967 when the Bishop of Savannah paid a visit to Stanton's hometown in Ireland. The Bishop asked for any young man to return to the United States to serve in the church. Stanton answered the call.

"It's good just to feel the support and get the support of the people and the encouragement from them as we had the celebration this evening. It was a very good moment," said Stanton.

Stanton's entire priesthood has been spent in Georgia. He first served as Assistant Pastor of St. Anne's in Columbus.
