Bishop Ger Nash has welcomed and congratulated the new Church of Ireland Bishop Adrian Wilkinson of Cashel, Ferns & Ossory.
“I wish to warmly welcome Bishop Adrian Wilkinson as the new Church of Ireland Bishop of Cashel, Ferns & Ossory. I spoke to Bishop Adrian following his election and I offered my congratulations to him on his new appointment as Bishop, and also extended my good wishes to his wife Jackie, said Bishop Nash.
“I assured Bishop Adrian and Jackie of my prayerful support and wish them God’s blessings as they undertake their new diocesan responsibilities. I look forward to working closely with them into the future,” he concluded.
Bishop Adrian has an established connection with his new diocese as his late father, Archdeacon Ken Wilkinson, previously ministered as Rector of Enniscorthy and Monart Union of Parishes from 1970 until 2002. He died at Hazelwood, Gorey, last October.
