Bishop Crean has made the following appointments in the Diocese of Cloyne with effect from noon on Saturday 11th September 2021.
I, as Bishop, and the people of the diocese are deeply indebted to our priests for their generosity of spirit and commitment.
As Fr. Denis Kelleher and Fr. Patrick Scanlan retire from full time ministry, we are grateful to God for their ministry in the various parishes they served. We pray the blessing of serenity upon their retirement.
We pray too, for those taking on new assignments. Transition always brings its own demand. Covid 19 adds to the list of adjustments that change demands. We pray the blessing of contentment upon them.
+ William Crean
