Sede vacante

Bishop James’ resignation for health reasons took effect on Sunday 21 August 2022 – his 30th anniversary of ordination as Bishop. With no successor yet appointed, the Diocese of Cairns is now sede vacante (a vacant seat/See) until such time as the pope appoints a new bishop; Fr Kerry Crowley (Parish Priest of Innisfail) was elected Diocesan Administrator.
