Ordination of Bishop of Ossory

On Sunday 11th March Mgr Dermot Farrell, a priest of the Diocese of Meath, will be Ordained as Bishop of Ossory.  Bishop-elect Farrell will take up his ministry as the next successor to St Kieran, the first to bring christianity to our Diocese.  As Bishop of Ossory he will have the responsibility to teach, govern and sanctify and in these weeks of preparation for his ministry with us he has asked that we pray for him. 

The Ordination of Mgr Dermot Farrell will take place in St Mary’s Cathedral, Kilkenny, on Sunday 11th March 2018 at 3.00pm.

We wish Mgr Farrell well in these weeks of preparation and look forward to his Ordination as our Bishop, an occasion of great joy for our Diocese.
