What a wide variety of speakers joined the Irish Chaplaincy Lent Talks this week. You can hear them again by clicking on the links.

Yesterday’s (Wednesday) talk, was given by the pioneer of Anna Chaplaincy, Debbie Thrower, drawing on the insights of Anna Chaplain Sister Marian from Swansea who is seeking to allow God to be more ‘in control’ this Lent.

Monday’s talk was from Elizabeth Palmer, chief executive of the St Vincent de Paul Society in England and Wales.

Tuesday’s talk was given by Sister Monica Killeen, a Sister of Mercy. During the last six years, she was a member of the leadership team for her congregation. She now lives in Feltham and works in the parish with another sister to support older/sick members of the parish.

Thursday’s speaker was Judy Powell who is a licensed lay minister (LLM or Reader) in the Church of England, based at St Paul’s Church, in Camden Square, not far from the London Irish Centre. She worked in the motor industry before retirement and also spent a short time as a member of an ecumenical lay community in Surrey.
