Goodbye Paul - A look back on Paul's Youth Ministry


Back in March 2017, after over four years as the Redemptorist Youth Ministry Coordinato, Paul Murphy left  us for pastures new. During his tenure he set up youth groups and young adult groups in Birmingham, Liverpool and London.  

Many people benefited from his work, new friendships were forged, and people’s knowledge of their faith enhanced.
