Following the appointment of Archbishop Dermot Farrell to Dublin, Pope Francis has appointed Bishop Denis Nulty as Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese of Ossory.
Bishop Nulty, along with his duties as Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin, will now shepherd the faithful of the Diocese of Ossory until a new bishop is appointed.
In accepting the appointment Bishop Nulty said, “Humbly and happily I have accepted this role. In my years as a neighbour in the Diocese of Kildare and Leighlin I have witnessed the many initiatives and activities of, and for, the faith which have been undertaken by people, religious, and priests of this great Diocese. It is my pleasure, then, to walk with the people of Ossory for this period of time as a new bishop is found. As Archbishop Dermot begins in Dublin I know you will join with me in a prayer of thanksgiving for his time in Ossory and we pray too that the Spirit will continue to guide him in his work now in Dublin”
Bishop Denis Nulty will lead Evening Prayer from St Mary’s Cathedral this evening at 7.00pm on the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord. The Prayer will be live streamed via the Cathedral webcam https://www.stmaryscathedral.ie/web-cam/.
