The Rev Carol Hennessy will be priested on Sunday 6th September, 2020, by Bishop Pat Storey.
Carol is to serve in Naas Union of Parishes, and it had been planned that the ordination would take place in St David’s Church, Naas.
However, with the Covid-19 restrictions the ordination has been moved to St Patrick’s Cathedral, Trim. The service will include Holy Communion. We are very thankful to Dean Paul Bogle for facilitating this service at the last minute.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions numbers attending the Service have to be restricted and all available places have now been filled. The service will be conducting in accordance with government guidelines concerning Covid-19, including practicing social distancing.
The preacher at the service will be Canon Gillian Wharton, rector of Booterstown and Mount Merrion parishes, in the dioceses of Dublin and Glendalough.
Carol lives in Athy, is married to Bill, and is a member of Portarlington parish. After being ordained as a deacon in September 2019 she began her ministry in Geashill, working with Canon Isaac Delamere.
As a diocesan family we pray for her as she looks forward to beginning this new phase of her ministry in Naas Union of parishes.
