Farewell to Rev Fran Grasham

Share this story

Rev Fran Grasham, priest-in-charge of Geashill and Killeigh, will be moving to Sunderland at the end of this year. We will be sorry to lose her from the diocese, where her past ministry has included being part of the ministry team in Kildare and Newbridge Group of parishes, as well as having been part time Church of Ireland chaplain to the Irish Defence Forces.

Her move follows the appointment of her husband Steve to an exciting new opportunity with the Church Army, in England. Steve is currently the Youth Coordinator for the Republic of Ireland, for the Church of Ireland Youth Department (CIYD).

Bishop Pat Storey said, “We are sorry to be losing Fran from her post in Geashill and Killeigh. She has had an effective ministry in Meath and Kildare, even though she has faced recent health issues. We wish both Fran and Steve every blessing as they move to Sunderland.”
