A word from Bishop Jones

Bishop Jones welcomes Father Browne’s appointment. As a priest of the Diocese of Elphin, Father Browne’s ministry has been marked by his profound spirituality and his innate sense of pastoral outreach. Father Browne has always exhibited a particular strength and sensitivity when dealing with the vulnerable, marginalised and lonely in our community. He is a highly intelligent man and the most approachable of pastors. I wish him all God’s blessings as he begins his new ministry as Bishop of Kerry.I ask the faithful of Elphin, and all people of goodwill, to join me in prayerful support of Bishop-elect Browne.
