We are the chaplaincy team for the YMCAs in Ireland. In the autumn of 2020, we launched our new Chaplaincy Programme seeking to support our Dublin, Cork, and Newcastle centres.
We are piloting a new training programme to place volunteer chaplains in our centres. We started training participants with the below sessions running October through February. We have accepted our first set of volunteer chaplains and they began their new role in March 2021.
We look forward to this new role helping to further support our staff, volunteers, young people, service users and local communities.
