Bishop Paul Tighe congratulated on Episcopal ordination in the Vatican

The Archbishop of Dublin, Diarmuid Martin, congratulated Bishop Paul Tighe on his Episcopal ordination in the Vatican on Saturday.

Bishop Tighe was ordained in St Peter’s Basilica in Rome by Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican’s secretary of state. He was appointed Bishop of Drivastrum and adjunct secretary of the Pontifical Council for Culture by Pope Francis last December.

Archbishop Martin and several priests from Dublin Archdiocese concelebrated (above) and many friends and family travelled to Rome for the occasion.

Paying tribute to the newly ordained Bishop Tighe, Archbishop Martin said he was a person of kindness and integrity, whose contribution to life of the Church was widely respected.

Archbishop Martin added that, together with the priests of Dublin Archdiocese, he wished Bishop Tighe every blessing in his ministry.
