WY D Walk Ray Mooney.jpg (300px wide)

Ray Mooney has announced his retirement as Youth Adviser. Ray has been in this role for 17 years. The diocese will be looking to recruit a replacement Youth Adviser and will be consulting with key stakeholders about developing it's support of Parish Youth Work – continuing the process began recently.

As part of the development of the Lourdes Pilgrimage it has been agreed that the Pilgrimage Office will take on responsibility for organising the Redshirt Pilgrims. The Pilgrimage Trust has recruited Ray Mooney, part-time, to coordinate the Redshirts on their behalf. Of course, the Redshirts will continue to be an important part of the life of the diocese and will be involved in diocesan events.

Above all the Diocese wishes Ray well as he begins this new chapter in his life.

For all enquires concerning the Lourdes Redshirts please continue to contact Ray Mooney on
