A thank you to Bishop Ray Field
Bishop Ray, retired at the end of June as an Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Dublin after reaching his 75th birthday. Bishop Ray has long been a good friend of the Oblates and has been leading our Lourdes Pilgrimage since 2002.
In addition to his support for the various Oblate missions in Dublin, Bishop Ray has also visited the Oblate mission in Brazil.

Paying tribute to Bishop Field, Archbishop Eamon Martin spoke of his “commitment to social justice”, which was evident “in his service as chair of the Bishops’ Council for Justice and Peace and as chair of the Council for Immigrants. These, along with his contributions on the Episcopal Commission for Pastoral Care, and on the Council for Healthcare, have demonstrated his instinctive pastoral outreach and his commitment to extending the care of Jesus Christ to those most in need of it. “I thank him for his generous participation in the work of the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference over these twenty-two years,” he added, and
“I pray God’s blessings on Bishop Field and wish him good health and happiness in retirement and in this new phase of his ministry.”
