Former missionary priest appointed PP in one of country’s biggest parishes

A former missionary priest has been appointed parish priest in one of the country’s biggest parishes.

The Right Rev. Monsignor Enda Lloyd, who is a native of Cormac Street, Tullamore, was installed last week as Parish Priest of Holy Redeemer Church, Bray, Co. Wicklow by Archbishop Diarmuid Martin.

Previously, Monsignor Lloyd served as Parish Priest of Greystones and as a curate in various parishes in the Dublin Archdiocese.

Prior to his time in Greystones, Fr Enda spent 9 years working with the Columban Order on the missions in Santiago, Chile.

He thoroughly enjoyed his time there and he has returned on a few occasions to maintain his friendship with former parishioners.

Shortly after his appointment to Greystones, Fr Enda was made an Episcopal Vicar for the Archdiocese. In this capacity, he carries out the functions of a bishop in a part of the Archdiocese.

He is now looking forward to engaging with the parish of Holy Redeemer and his friends wish him well in his new appointment.

Fr Enda was a former pupil of the Convent School and St. Columba's primary and secondary schools in Tullamore. He entered Clonliffe College, Dublin in 1960 and spent four years of his student preparation for the priesthood in Rome, where he was ordained in December 1966.

He is the son of the late Patrick and Bríd Lloyd of Cormac Street, Tullamore.
