The late Albert Moore: ‘friend, colleague and inspiration’ says Bishop Andrew

Bishop Andrew Forster has joined the many people paying tribute to the late Diocesan Reader and Innisrush parishioner, Albert Moore, who died on Saturday.

“I was very saddened, at the weekend, to hear the news of Albert’s death,” Bishop Andrew said. “He was widely known and widely liked throughout our Diocese. He was one of the kindest and most humble people you could meet, and a man who made his faith an intrinsic part of his daily routine as a servant of God.

“Those of us who were lucky to serve with Albert, through his 32-year-ministry as a Diocesan Reader and his many years of service on a variety of diocesan committees, can testify to his utter selflessness and generosity of spirit.

“What impressed me most about Albert, though, was his unfailing humility. He never sought or expected praise; he was a living embodiment of the dictum: ‘To God be the glory’. Albert never lost sight of that. He was a valued friend, an esteemed colleague and a real inspiration..

“I offer sincere sympathy to Albert’s wife Pearl, their sons Warren and Ray, and the wider family circle.”
