Highlights from the Episcopal Ordination of Bishop Paul Dempsey, Bishop of Achonry
Dear Friends, Greeting from Ballaghaderreen! I moved here last weekend and am currently in the “settling in” process of trying to find items in boxes that are strewn all over the house! It all takes time. It has been an extraordinary year with many twists and turns along the way! Despite all that, the day is now upon us where I will be ordained Bishop on Sunday afternoon in the Cathedral. The ceremony will be very different from what we had initially planned, mainly because of the current restrictions that need to be observed for safety reasons. However, I know many of you will be joining us “virtually” at 3pm on achonrydiocese.org. Over the coming weeks, I look forward to travelling around the Diocese to meet as many of you as I can. Thank you so much for the kind and hospitable welcome I’ve received in recent months. I know many of you have been praying for me which is deeply appreciated. Please be assured of my prayers for you at this time also. May the Lord continue to guide us as we “launch out into the deep” and begin this new chapter in the life of our Diocese. With warm wishes and every blessing,
