Today we remember the anniversary of the instillation of Bishop Eugene Hurley as Bishop of Darwin. He was installed on the 29th of August 2007.
We thank God for the wonderful Ministry that Bishop Eugene gave to our Diocese.
He had previously been Bishop of the Port Pirie Diocese in South Australia.
Although he became Bishop Emeritus of our Diocese when I was ordained Bishop here on the 26th of September 2018, he has carried on a full load of Ministry and service to God’s people.
He is a great support to me, and I am so glad that he chose to stay here in Darwin.
He also has been in great demand running retreats for priests all over the country.
Thank you and God bless Bishop Eugene.
