Foreign Missions


I am just in from doing something that I have never done before; anointing a snake bite victim. He is a single elderly man who was bitten two days ago while working in the fields. We hope and pray he did not delay too long before receiving treatment. Really he should be retired, but he has no other choice but to continue working.

Padre Denis Browne is a native of Carnew, Co. Wicklow was ordained for the Diocese of Ferns in 1991. After working as Hospital Chaplain and as Curate in Gorey he volunteered to serve on the Diocesan Mission to Brazil. He has been based there since 1996 and is currently ministering in Castanheira / Mato Grosso, Brazil.
