Faith Development team - Downpatrick
We welcome into the Parish of Downpatrick, two Faith Development team members.
They are Therese Crossan and Matt Brennan. This is a little bit about them.
Hi, My name is Therese and I'm part of the Faith Development team here in Downpatrick. I'm 19 years old and I live in West Belfast. I'm currently studying Youth Work and Theology at university and I look forward to learning more about Downpatrick and becoming more involved within the community over the next few months.
Hi, my name is Matt Brennan. I am 23 years old. I am from Poleglass, West Belfast. I studied Philosophy and Politics at Queen’s University Belfast. I have just returned home from a year of mission in America where I was working with university students. I enjoy anything to do with football (especially Liverpool), reading, and hanging out with my friends. I will be working as the Faith Development Youth Worker at Youth Initiatives, working in collaboration with the parish.
