Our diocese celebrates a new chapter in our story on April 14th 2013, with the ordination of Bishop designate Fr Brendan Leahy, as the new Bishop of Limerick.
Representatives from schools, parishes, organisations and groups across the whole spectrum of the life of the Limerick diocese will attend the celebration in St John's Cathedral. The good news is that the ordination is going to be transmitted via the internet - full details of this will appear here nearer the date.
As we prepare for this celebration, we are aware that we, like the apostles; are followers of Jesus, who are continually being called into new experiences of his love in our lives. So, this celebration is not just for those who will be in St John's Cathedral on April 14th. It is an opportunity for us all to renew our relationship with Jesus and to walk in hope with the Risen Jesus.
In an effort to engage the wider parish and, especially our young people, in this moment; we have created some resources for home, parish and school use in the week prior to the Bishops Ordination.
The accompanying cover letter is HERE
A cover letter to schools about these resources is HERE
We will continue to update this website with information about April 14th - we look forward to hearing lots of reports and photos from parishes, schools and families who joined in these celebrations.
