Two New Graduates in Clinical Pastoral Education in Cork, Cloyne and Ross

Friday 24th November was graduation day for pastoral care students at Cork University Hospital. In the Chapel of Christ our Saviour two people from the United Dioceses of Cork, Cloyne and Ross, Hilary Dring (Carrigaline Union) and Sylvia Helen (Kilgariffe Union) graduated with four other colleagues at the end of a very busy twelve week Clinical Pastoral Education Unit.  The Bishop, the Right Reverend Dr Paul Colton, attended the graduation ceremony, and congratulated Hilary and Sylvia.

At the CPE Graduation were (l-r) CPE Supervisor, Canon Daniel Nuzum, and graduates: Monica O’Donoghue, Piotr Delimat, Hilary Dring, Robin Thomas, Sylvia Helen and Dave Cribbin

Hilary and Sylvia described CPE as a programme that provided:

an excellent balance between experiential, practical and theoretical learning. It enhanced our personal growth, learning and development as well as our knowledge of pastoral care and chaplaincy. We were blessed with talks and input from multi-faith, national and international lecturers from places such as CUH, Marymount Hospice, Bon Secours Hospital, Mercy University Hospital, UCC, Canada and the UK. We benefited from a wealth of knowledge, grounded in the work people do in their fields of expertise. We shared times of prayer, reflection and learning with the other students and had supervision under the excellent tutelage of Dr. Daniel Nuzum. Placement on wards in CUH enabled us to put all the learning into practice. We visited many different people; some very ill and in hospital for a long time, others maybe only there for the day. Being present with patients and their families in their vulnerability during a difficult time in their lives and being allowed to share in a little of their journey was a real privilege. We were humbled by their courage and resilience and left with a feeling that people are truly amazing. For us it has been a gift and an opportunity which came our way; we are so glad we responded. Thank you to Daniel Nuzum for his leadership and care as supervisor and to the hospital staff for their welcome to us all. The whole CPE process engaged us physically, emotionally, spiritually and psychologically. We had a sense that all the diverse experiences we have had in our lives were coming together like strands of wool, and were being woven into a single thread or purpose. Throughout the 12 weeks we felt we were in the place God wanted us to be. We found it demanding and intense at times but also wonderful, fulfilling and life affirming. It was truly worthwhile.

At the CPE Graduation were (l-r): Bishop Paul Colton, Veronica Deane (Cork University Hospital), the Rev. Kingsley Sutton (Rector of Kilgariffe), the Rev. Elaine Murray (Rector of Carrigaline), Hilary Dring, Sylvia Helen, Canon Daniel Nuzum, and the Rev. Bruce Pierce.

Sermon at the Funeral of the Reverend Adrian Moran in Christ Church, Rushbrooke, County Cork

Sermon preached by the Right Reverend Dr Paul Colton,

Bishop of Cork, Cloyne and Ross

at the Funeral of the Reverend Adrian Peter Moran

Monday, 4th December 2017

‘For God’s testimony is; “You are a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek” ..’ Hebrews 7.17

All deaths bring great sadness and impact widely on family and friends.  The death of a leader in the community, in this instance, a serving priest within the Diocese, broadens the scope of grief.  It is exactly thirty years ago this year since a serving priest of Cork, Cloyne and Ross died in service.  Our grief is, of course, as nothing to yours, each of you Adrian’s family and loved ones.

Adrian liked tradition.  Today we bring him to this place in the traditional way.  We place him in the chancel, as a priest, from where he led worship.  His coffin faces you, as he faced you, the people of God,  Sunday by Sunday.

In that leading of worship, Adrian relied on the Book of Common Prayer as members of the Church of Ireland, as Anglicans, do.  It is our way.  Adrian did things by the book; it’s one of the things we admired in him.  As I say, that’s the Church of Ireland – it’s the Anglican Way.  In our part of the Christian tradition, the way we worship sets out the way we believe.  The Latin phrase is  Lex orandi; lex credendi – literally, ‘the law of prayer, is the law of belief’, or more colloquially, ‘the way we pray is the way we believe,’  Sometimes people add on Lex vivendi – the way we live – as we worship, so we will pray, and so we will live.  This is the way Adrian lived.  

So what does the Book of Common Prayer say to us about what we are doing here now? The Funeral Service, in its introduction, tells us why we are here:

  • to remember Adrian before God
  • to give thanks for his life
  • to leave Adrian in the keeping of God his creator, redeemer and judge
  • to commit his body to be buried
  • and to comfort one another in our grief, in the hope that is ours through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ

One of my abiding memories of Adrian is of him arriving at the Bishop’s drinks reception at the annual clergy conference in Ballylickey and, from my window seat, each year I knew, for sure, Adrian would come to the bar and ask what red wines were available.  He would ask to see the bottles before making a choice.   Fine wines were one of his interests, but they were far down the list of interests on his enquiry form sent to me when he was thinking of ordination.  Right at the very, undisputed, top was family.

And we are here to support, comfort and sympathise with you Adrian’s family, and to thank you for sharing him with us through his ministry in the Church. Here, in this part of the world, we know Mary-Rose and Suzie best, but to all of you, all Adrian’s children, Elizabeth, Ludovic, Miranda, Aidan, his grandchildren, sister Hilary (who I’ve known since the early 1980s, long before I ever knew Adrian), brother Derek and all Adrian’s grandchildren, and family circle; and I add today, you the people of Cobh and Glanmire among whom Adrian was serving when he died; to all of you I extend our sympathy.

We remember Adrian and give thanks for his life.  Adrian sent me his completed ordination enquiry form on 30th March 2004.  30th March, as it happens, was his birthday.  He was born on that day in 1945 in the Rotunda Hospital Dublin, his father was Joseph and his mother was Kathleen (her maiden name was Orr) and the family lived at 5 Butterfield Park in Rathfarnham in Dublin.  He was baptised in the parish Church in 1945 and confirmed on 29th May 1959 in St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin He went to Primary School in that parish from 1952 to 1954 before going to The High School which, in those days 1954 to 1963, was on Harcourt Street in Dublin.  Third Level education was at Trinity College Dublin where he did degrees, first in English Literature and then in Business studies.  He was a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in ireland, and had also undertaken qualifications awarded by the English Chartered Insurance Institute.  When I met him first he was a self-employed financial planning consultant. Over the years he worked in Dublin, Limerick and London; at  Craig Gardner/Price Waterhouse, at Limerick Savings Bank, Atlanta Trust (UK) and at National Guardian Mortgages (U.K.)

All of these considerable gifts and qualifications, Adrian brought to bear on his ministry, as a lay man – people’s churchwarden and rector’s churchwarden and on the Board of Management of St John the Baptist National School in Midleton, first as treasurer, and then as chairperson.  He worked as a consultant to Midleton College.  He was methodical, organised, attentive to detail, often serious and cautious, never impulsive, always self-confident, conscientious and diligent.   His was a vocation that had a long and persistent gestation. All of these qualities characterised his ministry as a priest among us and alongside us.  

On St Peter’s Day 2009 – appropriately for a man whose middle name was Peter – Adrian Peter Moran was ordained deacon by me in St Fin Barre’s Cathedral, alongside Patrick Burke and Anne Skuse, and he served his time as a deacon in the parish of St Anne, Shandon.  He had done training placements in Templebreedy Group, and in Douglas Union with Frankfield.  After Saint Anne’s he served in Fermoy Union (2010-13), in Bandon Union (2013-14) and, since 2014, he has been with you here in Cobh and Glanmire Union as Priest-in-Charge, while always ready to help, if needed, where he could elsewhere in the Diocese.  Here it has to be said he has given you fresh strength, new courage and confidence, and done you and us all a great service.  As Mary-Rose sat with Adrian in his dying hours last Wednesday, I asked her to send him our love and prayers, and to say thank you from all of us.

We have benefited greatly and in so many ways from the friendship and co-working of this interesting and talented man, human, of course, like the rest of us, and vulnerable to an intrinsic part of the human predicament:  illness.  He dealt with his privately, stoically, optimistically, with great personal dignity, and a lot of privacy.  

As we come here today to say ‘farewell in Christ’, we do so in the hope that is ours through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is popular at the ordination of a priest to allude to the letter to the Hebrews Chapter 7, verse 17:  ‘For God’s testimony is; “You are a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek ..’ (Hebrews 7.17)  It’s an easy mistake to make, but this is, of course, not a reference to the newly ordained priest, but to the great high priest, Jesus Christ himself: Jesus Christ who, died once for all and is risen from the dead, and who discharges his ministry on his people’s behalf in the power of a life which can never be destroyed.  That said, all of us, the whole people of God, lay and ordained, are invited to share in the work and ministry of Christ, to proclaim the good news as St Paul puts it in one of the earliest proclamations of the gospel:

In fact Christ has been raised from the dead …For since death came through a human being, the resurrection of the dead has also come through a human being; 22for as all die in Adam, so all will be made alive in Christ. … The last enemy to be destroyed is death … Listen, I will tell you a mystery! We will not all die, but we will all be changed …thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15)

Because of this good news we can indeed proclaim and trust in what is said in today’s readings, that ‘the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end’ (Lamentations 3.22) and that Jesus leaves his peace with us so that’… our hearts should not be troubled…’, ‘nor be afraid’ (John 14.27)

As a lay man first, and as an ordained priest since 2010 Adrian proclaimed and lived that.  Let us turn again to the Book of Common Prayer to remind ourselves what was said to Adrian on that Feast of the Visitation in 2010 when he was ordained to the priesthood:

Priests (or presbyters) in the Church of  God are called to work with the  bishop and with other priests as servants and shepherds among the people to whom they are sent. 

They are to proclaim the Word of  the Lord, to call those who hear to repentance, and in Christ’s name to pronounce absolution and declare the forgiveness of  sins.

They are to baptize, and to catechize.

They are to preside at the celebration of  the Holy Communion. 

They are to lead God’s people in prayer and worship, to intercede for them, to bless them in the name of  the Lord, and to teach and encourage them by word and example.

They are to minister to the sick and to prepare the dying for their death. They must always set the Good Shepherd before them as the pattern of their calling, caring for the people committed to their charge, and joining with them in a common witness, that the world may come to know God’s glory and love.

… You are to be messengers, watchers and stewards of the Lord; you are to teach and to admonish, to feed and provide for the Lord’s family, to search for God’s children in the wilderness of the world’s temptations and to guide them through its confusions, so that they may be saved through Christ forever. Your ministry will be one of joy as well as of responsibility, of happiness as well as of diligence. …

My friend, Father Kevin Morris, Director of Post-Ordination training in the Diocese of London at the time, preached at Adrian’s ordination to the priesthood on the Feast of the Visitation in 2010.  Those who were there, may perhaps remember the joke he told about the cross nun, but we may not remember that Kevin also quoted Canon Eric James.  Canon James wrote to a priest celebrating 40 years of ministry  and called this the experience priesthood – ‘the experience of human mystery’ helping us to understand ‘Divine mystery.’ and he said:

You have held a baby’s head in the cup of your hand as you have baptised it, you have sometimes been overcome with a sense of the incredible miracle of existence; and the human mystery has opened up onto the divine, or sometimes a young man and woman have stood side by side before you and taken the marriage vows with utter sincerity to God Himself, the human mystery has opened onto the divine. Or you have stood in a hospital ward or some other room of death at the bedside of someone leaving this world and all they love and you have stood with them and those they love, it has been the human mystery opening onto the divine of which you have been conscious, indeed have been overwhelmed by and you have experienced the enormous privilege of ministry.

Adrian experienced the enormous privilege of ministry.  We experienced the enormous privilege of Adrian’s ministry among us.  All that aside, you his family knew him better and best: as husband, as father, as grandfather, as uncle, and as brother.

Having remembered him before God and given thanks for his life, we come now to leave Adrian in the keeping of God his creator, redeemer and judge.  And we do so giving thanks ‘… to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.’

Announcement of Appointment of New Incumbent of Cobh and Glanmire Union of Parishes

Following a meeting of the Diocesan Committee of Patronage in the United Dioceses of Cork, Cloyne and Ross, the Bishop, Dr Paul Colton, is pleased to announce the appointment of the Reverend Paul Arbuthnot as Incumbent of Cobh and Glanmire Union of Parishes in the Diocese.

The Reverend Paul Arbuthnot was born in Northern Ireland in 1981, attended Downshire School, Carrickfergus and Belfast Royal Academy.  He studied history at Trinity College Dublin where he was awarded first a Bachelor in Arts degree, followed by a Master in Arts and a Master in Letters (M.Litt.).  He was awarded his Bachelor in Theology degree in 2010 and was ordained deacon that year and priest the following year. During his time at TCD he was a lay vicar and choral scholar at St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin, and also worked at the National Concert Hall.

His first curacy was in the parish of St Paul, Glenageary in Dublin (2010 to 2012).  From 2012 to 2015 he was Minor Canon and Precentor at St Albans Cathedral, St Albans in England, and from 2015 until February this year he was Minor Canon and Sacrist at Westminster Abbey.  Since then he has been working with the Salvation Army as Events and Marketing Manager at Oxford Street in London.

At a dinner hosted by the Cork Civic Trust in the Clayton Hotel in Cork City, the Spirit of Cork Award 2017 was presented to the Right Reverend Dr Paul Colton, Bishop of Cork, Cloyne and Ross.  This is only the third time that this award has been presented.  The inaugural recipient was Dr Edward Kiely of Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital ,and in 2015 the late Cork man and leading sports broadcaster and businessman, Bill O’ Herlihy, was the recipient.

Responding to the presentation of the Spirit of Cork Award, Bishop Colton said:

… that Michael Mulcahy will attest to the fact that I was a reluctant recipient, and had to be persuaded.  … I can think of 1000s of others who fit the bill of The Spirit of Cork; some of you are sitting here, most are not – people who have done this city and county great service, publicly and privately, some who have carried the weight and innovation of charitable and voluntary response to the pressing needs of our time, and some who, in their own lives, have been exemplars of human fortitude and self-sacrifice.

Bishop Colton shared memories of growing up in Cork in the 1960s and 1970s and then referred to the changed religious outlook since then:

I grew up with a version of Christianity that, by and large, looked in on itself, or rather, when it looked out, it sought the company of people like ourselves, or who were prepared to become like us, to think like us, to marry us and to perpetuate our way.  We were taught to lie low and to get on with it in our own minority way.  There were reasons for that, not all of them without foundation.  Protestants were not alone either in their insularity.

When it came to religion, the Cork I grew up in was more fort than frontier. Everything outside was risky.  I soon discovered, and still believe, that life is more exciting when you take down walls rather than build them.  Instead of pulling up bridges over moats to leave them down and to go out and start coming and going. Our children, rightly, have no truck with now with the world of circled wagons, nor do the majority of people.

Besides, there are more than two versions of Christianity in the village now, and there are many other faiths, philosophies and outlooks.  We live in a world where there’s room, enough room.  That brings its own challenges and opportunities; learning about one another, and building discourses of mutual understanding and common purpose.

I’ve a lot of contact with people who don’t really like the Church or institutional religion, but I’ve found that many are quite religious, and very keen on the message and person of Jesus Christ. There we’ve found common ground and made common cause.  Many of them have heard of the Jesus who, in the Gospel, turned water into wine, but have been wounded by a church that turned their good wine back into water. I am keen to show, and to encourage others to show, how broad and wide and inclusive the love of God is.

I’ve never been interested in the sort of Christianity that, as I say,  builds battlements, pulls up drawbridges, or circles wagons. There’s room for doubt and uncertainty. There’s room for questions. The wounds and injuries of history run deep; it falls to us to heal and reconcile.  The love of God embraces and includes; it does not push people away.  And that is why I will keep doing what I do, and saying the things I say, even when, or perhaps especially because,  it leads us into vigorous dialogue with one another.
