Welcome to priests from Zimbabwe

The Archdiocese is pleased to welcome two priests from the Diocese of Mutare in Zimbabwe.  Fr. Francis Mudungwe &  Fr. John Makoni have been assigned  to the Archdiocese of Cashel and Emly by the Bishop of Mutare, Bishop Paul Horan, O.Carm. who is a native of the diocese of Cashel and Emly. I am delighted that we have entered into an agreement between the two dioceses that will be of benefit to both dioceses.

I extend a warm welcome to Fr. Francis and Fr. John and wish them both well in their ministry among us.
