I am very excited to share that we are expanding to UCC in Cork this year and I will be the first team director there! I am from Mayo. I went to college and served as a missionary for a couple years at UCD in Dublin. This past year I have worked with the Catholic chaplaincy at Queens University in Belfast and now I am moving to Cork. From West to East to North to South, I will go wherever the Lord calls me!!
Since coming into my faith, I have wanted nothing more than to share this love and joy with others. I come from a small town in the West of Ireland where baptized Catholics are many, but those practicing are few. Through a difficult experience, Jesus entered my heart at a young age and I just knew that there was something more to this life, that something within me had changed, and that I would spend the rest of my life being grateful to Him for that moment. Over the years, I got involved with different forms of ministry and met the most incredible people who were living out the Catholic faith the way it was intended to be lived out. Many crazy experiences led me to fall in love with the teachings and traditions of the Catholic Church and I knew I could never turn back.
My last year of college, I became involved with FOCUS ministry at UCD in Dublin. I was blown away by the impact that my little yes could have on transforming people’s lives. It was a privilege to walk with a group of young and wonderful women, to challenge and support each other, and to grow together. I cannot put into words what an honor it was for me, to be able to witness them growing in friendship with Jesus, and for the first time, realizing that they have a purpose, that they are loved, and that they are worth dying for. My heart aches that God is blessing me with this unbelievable opportunity to walk with men and women in this way full-time.
One of my favourite verses in scripture is Acts 22:11 – “And when I could not see… I was led by the hand by those who were with me, and came into Damascus”.
With FOCUS, we are given the unique opportunity to fundraise our salaries and to invite others into our mission through their prayers and financial support. I know God is calling me to drop everything to serve him full-time through this ministry, but I cannot walk with people to Damascus without the support of mission partners. If you are interested in partnering with me or you would like to hear more about my journey or what this ministry looks like, please let me know of the best way to contact you. I would be honored for you to join me on this mission! Please pray for me and let me know how I can be praying for you.
