The Rev Canon Will Murphy, Director of Ordinands for Connor Diocese, was part of a panel which discussed the challenges of vocation and how churches can attract more people to work in ministry on BBC Radio Ulster’s Sunday Sequence on August 5.
Also on the panel were the Rev Andrew Faulkner (Presbyterian Church in Ireland), Anne Marie Whelan (a Catholic Vocations Officer) and Father Ultan McGoohan (Vocations Director, Catholic Church, Kilmore Diocese).
Canon Murphy has considerable experience meeting with ordinands over many years and has been actively involved in the vocations process in the Church of Ireland and with the Foundation Course that leads on to ministerial training at the CoI Theological Institute.
You can listen to the discussion on the BBC Radio Ulster – it begins 34 minutes into the programme.
Canon Murphy spoke about ordination in Connor Diocese in an interview in last autumn’s issue of the diocesan magazine Connor Connections. You can download and read the article HERE.
