New Youth Minister – Sandyford Parish
Catholic Parishes across Ireland are going through seismic transformations due to the lack of vocations to the Priesthood. This has meant that they are being “clustered” whereby 2 or 3 parishes are put together in a new group and being served by the same priests. However this has also opened up new opportunities for new ministries within these parishes. Conor Deane went out to one such Parish in Sandyford a Southside suburb of Dublin and dropped into see Pat Reynolds the new Youth and Development Director for the parish. What’s unique here is that Pat is a married father of 4 children. His wife is expecting their 5th child in the coming days.
