Changes in Irish hierarchy will continue, nuncio says

Catholic World News - February 03, 2014

The apostolic nuncio in Ireland has said that “a significant number of bishops will be appointed” this year, continuing a high rate of turnover in the Irish Church leadership.

Archbishop Charles Brown told the Irish Independent that he is working with the Vatican “as hard and as fast as we can, giving the necessary attention and prudence,” to find new bishops. Archbishop Brown was sent to Ireland by Pope Benedict XVI in 2011, at a time of crisis for the Church in Ireland, amid reports that the Vatican would seek to carry out a thorough transformation of the Irish hierarchy.
