Canon Alastair Graham has announced that he will be retiring on 10th March 2024. Alastair has been part of our diocesan family since June, 2009 when he became Rector of Mullingar Union. We are grateful to him for his passion and enthusiasm for ministry in the Mullingar Union of parishes. This was seen in such things as the recent youth initiative on climate change, ‘Lighten Our Darkness By Numbers’.

As well as having had a wide experience of parish ministry he took some years to serve in a strategic role with the HSE.

Bishop Pat Storey said, “We will be sorry to lose Alastair from the dioceses of Meath and Kildare. He, along with his wife Olive, has contributed much to the dioceses. We are particularly grateful for his work in encouraging and nurturing vocational life across the dioceses, most recently in his role as Joint Diocesan Director of Ordinands. We wish him and Olive every blessing in the years ahead.”
