Note from Bishop Crean: On doctors’ advice I have recently been requested to undertake some medical tests. These tests have indicated the need to draw some fluid from the left side of my head. This procedure has been completed and thank God it went smoothly and well. Recovery will take some time during which some restrictions will be placed on my ministry/ work. For those parishes immediately impacted by this situation, the Diocesan office will be in touch soon. Please keep me in your prayers, wishing you a Happy St. Patricks Day. May it be a day of joy and solemnity for you and your family. Bishop William Crean.
