We congratulate Wilson’s Hospital – its Warden, staff and pupils - on the recent official opening of The Preston Extension.   Read More...

Newspaper Article Press Release
The united dioceses of Meath and Kildare are delighted at the appointment of their bishop elect, the Revd Patricia Storey. We look forward to welcoming her to the dioceses in due course. The dioceses assure her and her family of our prayers and support as she prepares for episcopal ministry among us. Archdeacon Leslie Stevenson   

The House of Bishops meeting yesterday in Dublin appointed the Revd Pat (Patricia) Storey as our new Bishop to succeed The Most Revd Dr Richard Clarke, who is now Archbishop of Armagh. The appointment of the new bishop had passed to the House of Bishops as the Episcopal Electoral College which met on 28 May failed to appoint a Bishop of Meath and Kildare dioceses. The Revd Pat Storey is currently Rector of St Augustine’s Parish Church, Londonderry. The Revd Pat Storey said: ‘I am both excited and daunted by this new adventure in our lives. I have had an extraordinarily happy experience in St Augustine’s and in this wonderful city which I will be sad to leave. However, I count it an enormous privilege to begin a new phase of my ministry with the people of Meath and Kildare, and I look forward to working with the team of clergy who are already there. I would sincerely ask for your prayers for myself and my family, who are the best family in the world!’ The Revd Pat Storey (53) has been Rector of St Augustine’s, Londonderry (Derry and Raphoe) since 2004. She is married to the Revd Earl Storey and has two adult children, Carolyn and Luke, and a son-in-law Peter. Having grown up in Belfast and studied French and English at Trinity College, Dublin, she trained at the Church of Ireland Theological College (now Institute) and was ordained deacon in 1997 and priest in 1998. She served a Curacy in Ballymena (Connor) and was a Team Vicar in Glenavy (Connor) and a part-time Youth Worker Co-ordinator with the Church of Ireland Youth Department. Among Central Church participation, she is a member of the Standing Committee of the General Synod. The Revd Pat Storey becomes the first woman to be appointed a bishop in the Church of Ireland. The consecration of the new bishop will take place in due course, followed by enthronement in the diocesan cathedrals thereafter.

DIOCESAN SYNOD 2012 – PRESIDENT’S ADDRESS Saturday 06 October There is a poignancy and even some irony in that what I want to say to you today was, to all intents and purposes, written before the events of the past few days, and yet I found that I have had to change virtually nothing. And yet in other ways the meaning has become subtly different for us all. One of the great paintings of European art (although now housed in Boston Massachusetts), and one that has long exercised a real fascination for me, is a huge canvas by the great French artist, Paul Gauguin. It was painted by Gauguin in 1897, just a few years before his death, and has an intriguing title, but one that even my very limited French can manage - D’où Venons Nous / Que Sommes Nous / Où Allons Nous. D'où Venons Nous? Where have we come from? Que sommes nous? What are we? Où Allons Nous? Where are we going?   Read More...

ELECTION OF ARCHBISHOP OF ARMAGH & PRIMATE OF ALL IRELAND Congratulations to Bishop Richard on his election by the House of Bishops, as the Archbishop designate of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland. Bishop Richard has been with us for sixteen years and we have all benefitted from his ministry amongst us. He has made no secret of his love for these dioceses which he has shown to all those to whom he has ministered in this place. We are delighted for the Church of Ireland which will benefit from his many gifts, particularly his pastoral care. We will miss him but wish him every blessing in this next phase of his ministry. Bishop Richard remains as Bishop of Meath and Kildare until his translation and enthronement takes place on 15th December, 2012. Our thoughts, love and prayers are with him, Nicholas, Marianne and Liam, and with Lindsey.
