Great News for Clogher!!!!!
     News of Great Joy !

The priests and people of the parish of Muckno welcome the news delivered by the Papal Nuncio Archbishop Jude Okolo, that Pope Francis has chosen Mgr Larry Duffy Parish Priest of Carrickmacross to be the new Bishop of Clogher.

In this time of Advent we are conscious of the theme of a period of waiting leading to the joy-filled news of the birth of Jesus Christ. Our period of waiting for a Bishop following the early retirement of our beloved Bishop Liam Mac Daid, has now been ended with the wonderful news that Fr Larry has been chosen as our new Shepherd.

Fr Larry ministered in our parish from 1978 to 1995 and his gentleness and sensitivity to the pastoral care of the people has left an indelible mark on our community.

As a faith community who have seen his ministry at first hand, we join with the people of the parishes of Enniskillen, Monaghan, Ederney, Clones and Carrickmacross, and with the people of the Diocese of Kitui, in asking God’s blessing on Fr Larry, and we pray he may be given health and contentment as he leads our Diocese in the coming years.
