Bishop Fintan Monahan welcomes the appointment of Father Ger Nash as Bishop of Ferns

I warmly congratulate Father Ger Nash on his appointment as Bishop of Ferns.

I have known him since we started in Maynooth together in September 1984 and being ordained one day apart in June 1991.

I am deeply indebted to him since my arrival here in the diocese of Killaloe five years ago.  His tremendous work, support, energy, vision, practical, down-to-earth approach and untiring dedication as both diocesan secretary and director of pastoral planning has been immense.

He will bring with him a rich wealth of wisdom, diligence, work ethic, patience, strong faith, pastoral experience and capacity for relating and empathising with so many people.

Killaloe’s loss with be a huge gain for the faithful of Ferns.

May God bless Father Ger for a long and fruitful ministry as bishop as he continues to be a dedicated pastor of Jesus Christ in his new role.
