A Statement from Bishop Ken Good regarding Rev Pat Storey's appointment as Bishop of Meath and Kildare.
I warmly welcome the Rev Pat Storey's appointment as Bishop of Meath and Kildare. It is great news indeed.
In the diocese of Derry and Raphoe we know well how gifted Rev Pat Storey is and how effective her ministry is not only in a parish setting but also far beyond the local church. Her warmth, her deep personal faith and her natural ability to relate to people have enabled her to make a significant impact throughout the city, the diocese and the wider community.
I am convinced that Pat will be an excellent bishop. Not only will the diocese of Meath and Kildare benefit greatly from her episcopal ministry but so, too, will the wider church and community.
The parish of St Augustine's and the Diocese of Derry and Raphoe will greatly miss Pat and her husband, Rev Earl Storey. Yet we are really delighted with this news and assure them of our prayers for all that lies ahead.
