Yesterday, 22nd December 2016 the news has arrived that the Rector Major Fr Ángel Fernández Artime with the consent of his Council has chosen Fr Eunan McDonnell as next provincial of Salesian Province of Saint Patrick (Ireland and Malta) to succeed Fr Michael Casey, and Fr Eunan has accepted.
While we thank God for this sign of his love for our province, we wish Fr Eunan every blessing and pledge him our support as he fulfils the mission to which he has been called, and responded – like Mary – so generously. “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord, Let it be done according to your Word” (Lk.1:38). Fr Eunan will start his six year on the 5th August 2017, during the celebration presided by Fr Tadeusz Rozums – Regional for Europe Central-Nord.
Thank you also in a special way to Fr Michael for his work over the past six years to promote the mission of Don Bosco. May the Lord reward him abundantly.
