Hi, I've just started here as the new Youth-worker in the parish and wanted to tell you all a little about myself.
It so happens that I have known my predecessor here, Martin, for a few years. I know what big shoes (and big heart) I have to fill. I wonder if I will be able to! I met Martin through our mutual and dear friend Tillie Callaghan RIP who came here with Martin to the parish and who I believe has lead me here to continue her work; She is our volunteer heavenly youth worker!
I am 23yrs old and I was brought up a Catholic but fell away as a teenager but was dragged kicking and screaming back into the church by a friend; since then I have been sharing this treasure with other young people, most recently at Birmingham University, which work will continue this year, alongside my work here.
I am very excited to be entering upon such a vibrant community as the parish (and of course schools) of St Mary Magdalen’s, which exhibits such commitment, energy and contemplation. I much look forward to learning more about this family, and growing with you all in our journey. Be patient with me!
Thank you for the warm reception I have received so far. I do hope to get to know all of you, though I realize it’s a big community. A particular request from me to all the young people in the parish; I would like to meet you so please come and talk to me, I don't bite! I will be outside Church after all Masses next weekend.
