Bishop John Noonan sees his ministry as a priest and bishop as a mandate from God. His Episcopal motto “God before me and God with me” originates in Exodus when Moses was leading the chosen people out of slavery and into the Promised Land. That same prayer was spoken by St. Patrick as he preached the Gospel in Ireland. Like Moses and St. Patrick, Bishop Noonan, fifth bishop of Orlando, is following God’s call to serve His people.
