Statement of Archbishop Dermot Clifford on the appointment of Bishop Kieran O’Reilly as his successor

 

I warmly welcome the Holy Father’s choice of Bishop Kieran O’Reilly to be my successor as Archbishop of Cashel & Emly.  I wish to thank His Excellency, the Papal Nuncio, Archbishop Charles Brown, for being in the Cathedral of the Assumption today to announce the good news to representatives of the priests and people in the Archdiocese.

 

Over the years, I always prayed that I would be here and well enough to ordain my successor when I reached retirement age.  As it turns out, I now find that I  have already ordained him four years ago in Ennis!  I recall that I anointed him liberally with the Oil of Chrism, without realising that I was anointing him for two dioceses!  I have been privileged to be working with him over the past four years as a Bishop of the Munster Province and as a colleague and friend in the Bishops’ Conference.  We have worked together in a number of Commissions and he is now the Episcopal Secretary to the Conference.  That he is a scholar I learned from others, that he is a gentleman I have found out for myself.

 

The official term is that Bishop Kieran is being translated from Killaloe to Cashel & Emly.  I recall the award winning film of some years ago, “Lost in Translation”.  Bishop Kieran has been translated several times in his life. But he has certainly never been lost in translation. In fact, he has gained each time he was moved and, not only that, he has grown. He went from Ireland to Liberia as a missionary, then back to Rome for Scripture Studies. Next he was moved to Ibadan, Nigeria to teach in the seminary.  He returned to Rome to become Superior General of the Society of the African Missions and was re-elected after six years, a sign of his popularity among his fellow African Missionaries worldwide.  From there he came to Killaloe in 2010 as Bishop.  He has wide experience of the Church on the missions, in Rome and in Ireland.

 

As the new Archbishop, he will have no shortage of challenges in his new role.  The Apostolic Visitator who came here in 2011, Archbishop Thomas Collins, Toronto, observed in his Report that “while there were relatively few cases of child clerical abuse in Cashel and Emly and that they had all been properly handled, this work has required great effort leaving less energy for the work of evangelisation so essential in such a secular atmosphere.  It is therefore necessary to re-energise the traditional spirit of faith of the Christian community and to reactivate programmes of renewal…as soon as possible.”

 

I believe Bishop Kieran is the ideal man to work with priests and people in the work of evangelisation and spreading the Good News. Of course, the area of marriage and the family is of renewed importance especially in view of the recent Synod of Bishops in Rome and the next one in 2015.

 

I look forward very much to his presence in Thurles when he is installed in the New Year.  I will not be too far from him.  My motto will be, “Ever ready, never in the way” (Cardinal Newman). Easier said than done, those who know me will say! I have no doubt whatsoever that the priests and people of Cashel & Emly will give him a hearty welcome and willing cooperation in his years as their Archbishop.

 

ENDS

On behalf of the Diocese of Cashel & Emly I welcome this report of the National Board for Safeguarding Children and fully accept its recommendations. The majority of the recommendations have been implemented and the remainder will be completed as speedily as possible.

 

Firstly, I re-iterate my sincere apologies to those who have been harmed in this manner by priests of the Diocese. What happened to them was an outrageous betrayal of the priests’ calling and deserves our complete condemnation. Their suffering continues and we once again offer them not only our prayers but assistance in any way we can.   

 

The report by the National Board for Safeguarding Children  in the Catholic Church in Ireland (NBSCCCI) on safeguarding practice in Cashel & Emly is generally very positive and complimentary for which we are grateful. I warmly thank them for this on behalf of the priests and people of the Diocese.

 

It is a testament to the commitment and hard work of all those who endeavour to ensure that our practices and procedures are the best we can possibly make them. However, there can be no room for complacency. The hard work must continue so that we can be assured that the children and young adults in our midst are kept safe from harm. Vigilance is essential as the threat of harm does not go away. Therefore, we must be constantly on our guard and keep in place the necessary structures to enable those who have any evidence, or suspicions, of wrongdoing to take appropriate action such as informing the Designated Officer, the Gardai or the HSE.

 

While the structures are hugely important, the safeguarding of children in our Diocese could not have been the subject of complimentary remarks from the NBSCCCI without the work being done on a daily basis by the  priests, religious and the many volunteers. I very much appreciate the wonderful work they continue to do. 

 

I am most grateful to the Diocesan Committee for Safeguarding Children, the Child Protection Delegate, Bill Meagher, and Sr. Carmel Bourke, the Diocesan Child Protection Co-ordinator.  I would also like to thank the National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church for their guidance and assistance over the past number of years.  I also appreciate this valuable and helpful assessment of safeguarding policies and practices in our Diocese.

 

I can assure the people of the Diocese that we will continue to do everything in our power to protect the children and young people involved in Church activities. The work continues. But, please keep in your prayers those who suffered and continue to suffer.
