Bishop Dooley recently returned to work after taking leave at the end of lockdown.

The break showed him it was better to ask for help than to just carry on, Bishop Dooley said.
He hoped people in the parish would see his example and look after their own mental health as well.
"I’m doing great," he said of being back.

He was ordained as bishop on April 26, 2018.
