Joyful Celebrations Greet New Bishop in Native Parish

On Sunday evening Bishop Kieran O’Reilly S.M.A. received a wonderful welcome on his first official visit to his native parish, since his ordination as Bishop of Killaloe at the end of August. The Church of Christ the King  in Turner’s Cross was packed to capacity as family, neighbours and old friends turned out to greet and congratulate the new Bishop. The Liturgy of welcome highlighted the new Bishop¹s story of faith and paid tribute to family, teachers, religious and priests who had helped to shape Bishop Kieran’s vocation. It also acknowledged the wonderful service that the new bishop has given to the Church as a missionary pastor, as a teacher and as a leader.

In welcoming the new Bishop home, Fr. Kerry expressed a warm welcome to Bishop Kieran and his family saying “it’s great to have you home to this Church, this place that has meant so much to you, the rock from which you were hewn, the community  where you have so many memories. Returning to the roots of your faith.”

He then presented Bishop O’Reilly with a case containing a vestment and Sacred Oil Stock for use in administering the Sacrament of Confirmation.

In accepting the gift from the people of the Turner’s Cross Parish Bishop Kieran recalled his school days in the parish and the great moments of First Communion and Confirmation in the Church of Christ the King. He thanked all who contributed to making his homecoming so special and memorable.

Following the liturgy, the congregation led by Mayfield Brass Band and Colour Party of scouts marched  up Evergreen Rd to the Scoil Chriost Ri Hall where a reception was held and memories were shared.
