On Tuesday 8 March, Chair Deborah Girvan and Vice Chair David Lennon were delighted to welcome Rev Phil Goodey, Dean of North Downs and Maidstone to Bangor. After picking up a copy of a DVD called ‘Blessing Europe’, The Legacy of the Celtic Saints, by Rainer Walde (see YouTube version below), Phil was inspired to take a sabbatical year from his ministry in Kent to follow the footsteps of Columbanus in Ireland and across Europe.

If you are interested in following his video blog, called Phil’s Irish Journey, here he is talking about his visit to Bangor.
