Statement by Bishop Jones on the appointment of Father Raymond A Browne as Bishop of Kerry

 I warmly welcome the announcement today by the Holy Father Pope Francis of Father Raymond A Browne as Bishop of Kerry.

As a priest of the Diocese of Elphin, Father Browne’s ministry has been marked by his profound spirituality and his innate sense of pastoral outreach.   Father Browne has always exhibited a particular strength and sensitivity when dealing with the vulnerable, marginalised and lonely in our community.  He is a highly intelligent man and the most approachable of pastors.   I wish him all God’s blessings as he begins his new ministry as Bishop of Kerry.

I ask the faithful of Elphin, and all people of goodwill, to join me in prayerful support of Bishop-elect Browne.

+ Christopher Jones
Bishop of Elphin
