We are sorry to announce due to circumstances beyond our control, Father Brendan McConvery will no longer be able to join us for the annual theological lecture. However we are delighted that Brian McKee has agreed to take his place. Born and brought up in the Ardoyne community, Brian is both a qualified teacher of Religious Studies and youth worker. He has over 30 years experience of working in youth ministry and adult faith development. He was formerly Diocesan Director of youth ministry in Down and Connor for 10 years with a particular commitment to building peace and reconciliation. Brian is currently self-employed and works mainly in the field of peace and reconciliation with the Passionists in Ardoyne and as a director of retreats in Tobar Mhuire Retreat Centre, Crossgar. Brian is a regular speaker at both national and international conferences for both adults and young people.

Healing a Wounded City with former Presbyterian Moderator Dr Trevor Morrow and Brian McKee will take place on Sunday 5th February, 7:00pm at St Theresa’s Church, 135 Glen Road, Belfast.
