Bishop Ian Murray has given notice to Rome that he is resigning from his post after eight years in charge.
Bishop Murray has just turned 75 and has to offer his resignation so the church can appoint a successor.
‘In September I wrote to the Pope and I received a letter saying they had accepted my resignation,’ the bishop told The Courier.
‘We are now in the nunc pro tunc situation which translates in English as ‘now for then’. I am here until a successor is appointed.’
