      Fr William Doyle SJ 

      Bishop Deenihan promulgated an Edict announcing that he was opening the Cause for the Beatification and Canonisation of the Servant of God, Father William Doyle SJ (1873-1917). The Opening Session of the Cause will take place at the Cathedral on Sunday 20 November 2022 at 5pm, following Sung Vespers of the Solemnity of Christ the King.
      Father Doyle is renowned for his holiness and heroism and, though he died over a hundred years ago, his reputation for sanctity and intercessory power endures and devotion is stronger than ever throughout the world. A whole new generation is discovering him and he is winning the hearts of young Catholics who are impressed with his heroic spirit, his vibrant personality, and his intense spiritual life. 
      Father Willie’s connection with our diocese is an important one. He entered the Jesuits at the college in Rahan in March 1891 and the two years he spent there were among the most formative in his life. It was there, in May 1893, he made the Oblation of his life, through the hands of Mary, to live a life of martyrdom even to the point of physical martyrdom. Not only did Willie remain faithful to that offering but his death on the battlefield as a ‘martyr of charity’ on 16 August 1917, as he was trying to save two wounded soldiers is seen by many as the consummation of that offering. The official website for his Canonisation offers details on his life, holiness, and sacrifice, see:
