This year's Conference 2019

This year’s annual conference took place this month at Hinsley Hall. It was the usual mix of good input and conversations with old friends and new colleagues and prayer and worship together.

For me, there was some sadness as after nine years as National Coordinator of Catholic chaplains in Higher Education, I will be retiring at the end of July. I am grateful for all the friendship and support chaplains have given me and one another over the years and wish you all well.

I am delighted that Helen Townsend who is Catholic lay chaplain at Lincoln University has been appointed as National Coordinator and will take up the role on August 1. I know she will be a great support to university chaplains in their important ministry.

There is also a new Conference committee;

Chairperson: Mia Fox  (Newcastle)
Secretary: Valentina Stilo  (Southampton)
Treasurer: Fr Neil Ritchie  (Liverpool Universities)
Ordinary members:
Anouska Robinson-Biggin FCJ  (Goldsmiths and South Bank)
Niall Hammond (Keele)
