Hearty Congratulations to Bishop Elect of Ferns.
My very sincere congratulations to Fr. Ger Nash on being nominated by Pope Francis as bishop of our neighbouring diocese of Ferns. I met Fr. Ger often on his visits to the Regional Hospital in Limerick when I was chaplain there and when he would make his regular calls to his sick parishioners from his parish in Clare. He has vast pastoral experience and will, I have no doubt, bring wonderful gifts from God to his new role. I wish him every blessing on his ministry in Ferns. I am sure he will receive a warm welcome and great support from the priests and people. May God bless him abundantly.
