Bishop Edward Daly

Last week, our beloved retired bishop, Edward Daly, returned to God. It has been a time to remember Bishop Daly’s faithful service of God and the people of this diocese. Over the days many people shared their experiences of meeting with Bishop Edward and the kindness and compassion he showed, in actions both great and small. It was my privilege to lead the Funeral Mass and burial rites. I thank you, the people of this diocese, for your overwhelming response to the death of Bishop Edward, for attending his wake, the liturgies which were celebrated and his funeral. In prayer, we now entrust Bishop Edward’s soul to our Eternal Father, that he may be welcomed into his Heavenly Kingdom. May he rest in peace.

Essential repairs and refurbishment at St Eugene’s Cathedral

Since May 2015 a programme of essential repairs and refurbishment has been undertaken by St Eugene’s Cathedral.  The work is primarily associated with damage caused by the entrance of moisture to the fabric of the building affecting internal finishes, stained glass windows and external masonry.  In particular the stained glass windows on the western wall (St Columba and St Patrick), the bell tower, sacristy and choir areas have been badly affected.    There is also the need for structural repairs to areas of the bell tower.  Cast iron rainwater goods and access ladders are being replaced or repaired as necessary. The work has only been made possible because of the award of their maximum grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund of £250,000 (Grants for Places of Worship) as well as a grant of £73,500 from the Department of Environment.  The estimated cost is £353,000 and works are programmed to complete at the end of October (weather permitting).  Fr Paul Farren, Administrator of St Eugene’s Cathedral, said ‘I am delighted that we can carry out these necessary repairs to this most significant building. We are deeply indebted to the Heritage Lottery Fundfor their maximum grant and to Minister Mark H. Durkan and his department for their ongoing support and funding.
