Bishop-Elect Paul Dempsey

 

Fr Paul Dempsey

Father Paul Dempsey, Bishop-elect of the Diocese of Achonry has issued the following statement today:

“It is with regret that we have had to postpone my Episcopal Ordination as Bishop of Achonry which was planned for Sunday 19th April. I requested the postponement in light of the Coronavirus pandemic. I have asked that the ceremony be rescheduled until sometime in the Summer. This decision has been difficult but it would not have been appropriate to proceed with the ordination at this time.

The decision has been made in consultation with His Excellency Archbishop Jude Thaddeus Okola and the Diocese of Achonry.  I am grateful to Archbishop Okolo and to the priests, religious and faithful of the Diocese of Achonry for their patience and understanding as we deal with the unprecedented consequences of Covid-19 in our country and in our world.

I am grateful to Bishop Denis Nulty, Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin, who has asked me to continue for the moment as parish priest in Newbridge Parish.

I ask for your prayers at this time for all those affected by the coronavirus pandemic.”

Ends:


Fr Dermot Meehan is Diocesan Administrator of the Diocese and continues in that role of leadership and pastoral care of our diocese up to the moment Bishop-Elect Dempsey is ordained.

Public Celebration of Masses

SUSPENSION OF CELEBRATION OF PUBLIC MASSES

13th March 2020

In line with national and governmental efforts to stem the spread of Covid-19, the decision is reluctantly taken to cancel all public Masses in the Diocese of Achonry including Vigil and Sunday Masses this weekend up to and including March 29th.

Priests will continue to celebrate Masses in their parishes but not open to the public. The intentions of all parishioners and all affected by the current difficult and challenging situation will be remembered.

Churches will be open during the days for personal visits and prayer. All faithful are asked to pray for a speedy and safe outcome to the difficulties posed by Covid-19.

Funerals, weddings and Baptisms will continue to be celebrated. However numbers attending will be restricted to the maximum 100, in accordance with instructions received.

Fr Dermot Meehan, Dioceasan Administrator of Achonry, calls for widespread prayer and asks that all people act for the common good and promotion of healthcare. He also asks for prayers for all on the frontline, engaging with those in most and direct need.

Webcams are installed in a number of our churches and Mass may be accessed in this way and through local radio. Please share in these Masses and be united in prayer.
