I warmly congratulate Monsignor Eamon Martin on his appointment as Coadjutor Archbishop of Armagh.
Monsignor Martin has given generous priestly service over twenty five
years in the Diocese of Derry.
Of particular note has been his
dedicated work in the field of education, both as a teacher and as
President of Saint Columb’s College, Derry.
In addition to his ministry
in Derry, Monsignor Martin made a great contribution to the Irish
Episcopal Conference, during his time as Administrative Secretary.
Having worked with Monsignor Martin for many years, I know that he
will bring great dedication, energy and enthusiasm to Armagh.
I pray that God will bless Monsignor Martin’s Episcopal ministry and
the people of the Archdiocese of Armagh, whom he will serve.
Bishop Séamus Hegarty
Bishop Emeritus of Derry
