|Ray Mooney former Youth Adviser and now Lourdes Redshirt Co-ordinator|
The growing links between the Redshirts and the main pilgrimage has made this a good moment in which to transfer responsibility for Redshirts to the Lourdes Pilgrimage Office. Ray will be retaining his involvement with the Redshirts through the Lourdes Office.
Ray’s departure creates a space on the pastoral team in the vital area of youth ministry. Bishop Kieran met with a number of people from across the diocese engaged in youth ministry recently to discuss the development of this area in the future.
In the meantime, we would all want to thank Ray for his many years of service to the Diocese and to wish him well in the next phase of the development of the Redshirts.
The post of Youth Adviser will be advertised in the near future.
