Bishop James has retired

Bishop James’ early resignation for health reasons was accepted by Rome, and took effect on Sunday 21 August – his 30th anniversary of ordination as Bishop. He was farewelled after the 5pm Mass at the Cathedral. With no successor yet appointed, the Diocese of Cairns is now sedes vacante (a vacant See) until such time as a new Bishop is appointed by the Pope; Fr Kerry Crowley (Parish Priest in Innisfail) was elected Diocesan Administrator on the following day.
