Fr Mark Soady has this morning completed his last duty as Chaplain of the University of Wales, Newport, prior to his collation as Vicar of Abergavenny this evening.
Fr Mark introduced his successor, Fr William Ritchie, to the University and its personnel. Fr Mark says “It’s always hard to say goodbye after 40 months, but I already feel part of the community which is Abergavenny.”
Sermons during Lent will be given by Chaplains from the prison sector, the military, the health service and by the new University Chaplain, Fr William. The sermons will unpack the role of sector chaplaincy and its value to the Church and the institutions in which they are based.
