“Having worked in Africa myself, I know the immense value placed by people and communities on clean drinking water and its impact on their lives” – Bishop Larry Duffy.
Dom Malachy Thompson was ordained a Cistercian priest on Pentecost Sunday, while on Sunday 30 June Bishop Larry Duffy will ordain Deacon Kevin Connolly for Clogher diocese.
Lighting the candles of atonement will bring to mind those who have been left “with lifelong suffering as a result of abuse, whose trust was so deeply betrayed and whose faith has been so cruelly tested within the sanctity of the Church”.
“Imagine if everyone could find their unique ‘call within a call’; say their personal ‘Here I am, Lord’ and become part of the new evangelisation in Ireland!”
"I am Larry Duffy – a human being; I enjoy people; I love the Church and I try to follow Christ – poorly at times. I am a sinner like the rest – that is the package.”
