Following the devastating fire in Wexford General Hospital on 1 March, Bishop Ger Nash, Bishop of Ferns, spoke of his admiration of the courage, kindness and mercy that the emergency services and medical staff displayed.
Bishop Nash said, “From the bottom of my heart I thank God for our unsung heroes, these Good Samaritans, in our community.
“It is miraculous that there was no loss of life caused by this extensive hospital fire and that over 200 patients were safely protected and transferred to other hospitals. I intend to offer a Mass of Thanksgiving to God in gratitude that no person was killed by the fire, and for the intentions of every person who helped to remove patients from danger and successfully contain the fire. I invite each parish of the Diocese of Ferns to include prayers of Thanksgiving in their Masses over this weekend” Bishop Nash concluded.
