ADDRESS OF KEVIN DORAN Bishop of Elphin On the Occasion of his Episcopal Ordination
13th July 2014
 
ordination-319Since my appointment as bishop of Elphin, I have been very conscious of the rich Christian heritage of our diocese, dating as it does from the time of St. Patrick. We celebrated that great tradition of faith in our vigil of prayer last night and Fr. Liam has also recalled it in the course of his homily. The important thing is that places like Boyle Abbey and Inishmurray and our various Holy Wells are not just reminders of the past. The faith which they represent is lived and celebrated today in towns and villages throughout our diocese. We build on foundations that have been laid by others. Where others have sown the seed, we reap the harvest. Our faith, like the very land on which we live, is entrusted to us for the generations who will come after us. This is a sacred trust.

We gather today on this momentous and historic occasion when another chapter is added to the long history of Elphin diocese with the ordination of Fr. Kevin Doran as our bishop. This ancient territory bearing the footprints of St. Patrick touches the very cradle of Christianity in this part of the country.  The Diocese of Elphin as we know it today dates back to the Synod of Kells in 1152 and in modern day geographical terms stretches from the bridge of Athlone to the bridge of Bunduff near Bundoran.  The Episcopal See of Elphin is of much greater antiquity and can be traced back to the 5th century when St. Patrick appointed St. Asicus as his disciple and first Abbot Bishop of the Church of Elphin.
