New Rector from Iceland
Ása (pronounced Awsa) Ólafsdőttir from Iceland was recently appointed to the post of Vicar of Christ Church Dun Laoghaire (CCDL) and Diocesan Ministry Development Officer. As well as coming from an unusual background, she is also the first women cleric in the Dun Laoghaire parish. Both she and the diocese are excited about the move. Miriam Gormally spoke with Ása to find out how she ended up coming from Iceland to Ireland.
In a second part next week, Miriam Gormally will discuss the role of clerical women with Ása and her views on the current disputes within the Catholic Church regarding the matter.
