Hannah O’Neill appointed to a new role in the Sligo Centre of Mission

DKEA is delighted to welcome Hannah O’Neill back to the diocese in her new role in the Sligo Centre of Mission.

Hannah is 31 years old, from East Belfast but for the last 4 years has been living and working in Craigavon as the Youth and Kids Pastor at Hope Church in Down and Dromore Diocese. In September she began training with Church Army and wholeheartedly believes in their vision “for everyone everywhere to encounter God’s love…”

Hannah was previously in Kilmore diocese as the youth and Children’s co-ordinator, whilst also serving in the Killeshandra Group of Parishes, and is very much looking forward to her return to KEA. 

“Having grown up visiting Rosnowlagh every summer with family, South Donegal is my favourite place on earth. I am excited and expectant for the move to Bundoran and all God is unfolding through the Sligo Centre of Mission. I’m looking forward to reconnecting with old KEA friends and making new ones, and working together to build God’s Kingdom in the local area.”

Hannah will be working with the Sligo Centre of Mission whilst also supporting ministry in the Manorhamilton Group of Parishes. She is particularly enthusiastic about creating environments for children and young people to encounter the love of God whether that be through prayer spaces, youth groups or schools work. As such, Hannah will be hoping to help facilitate ministry for the younger generations, particularly those who are largely unfamiliar with church.
