A new chapter in the life of Whitechurch Parish began on Friday evening (August 26 2022) with the institution of the Revd David Bowles as Rector. Parishioners were joined by family and friends from all over Ireland to fill the church and welcome David and his wife Michelle and their children Harry and Hannah.

The new Rector was instituted by Archbishop Michael Jackson who said it was a joy to see a church full to capacity after such a long time living in the ecclesiastical wilderness. He added that it was a testimony to the welcome the family would receive in Whitechurch.

David’s institution marks a return to Dublin after seven years of ministry in the Dioceses of Cork, Cloyne and Ross. He was Curate Assistant in Douglas Union of Parishes from 2015 to 2019 when he was appointed half time Priest in Charge of Moviddy Union of Parishes and half time Health Care Chaplain in Cork University Hospital and the Bons Secours Hospital in Cork city. He was joined on Friday evening by many clerical colleagues from Cork, Cloyne and Ross as well as colleagues from Dublin and Glendalough and those involved in youth ministry as he was on the Diocesan Youth Council.
