Canon Adrienne Galligan

 

In my personal deepening of faith the verse of scripture that underpins my life are the 3 words in John’s Gospel 19 v 30:
‘’It is finished,’’ spoken by Jesus on the cross. His work of redemption was complete, followed by his resurrection to new life and hope, the freedom of which I very gratefully walk in. 

The Christian influences on my life began with my parents Patrick and Patricia. In Trinity I attended the Christian Union and the bible studies in the Apostolic Pentecostal and Evangelical Church, located then in Pearse Street. There I taught Sunday School and lead the youth ministry and also, with Child Evangelism Fellowship, I served as a youth leader and assisted at the Bible camps.

On obtaining a teaching appointment in East Glendalough Comprehensive School, Wicklow Parish became my spiritual home until 2000, when by God’s grace and Archbishop Empey’s support, I began studying for ordained ministry. Before being appointed to Rathfarnham Parish it was my privilege to serve as incumbent in the Grouped Parishes of Crumlin and Chapelizod (2008-2015), as Curate Assistant in Seapatrick Parish Banbridge (2003-2008), as student reader (2000-2003) in Trinity College Dublin, Armoy & Loughguile, Donaghcloney & Waringstown, Kilbride & Powerscourt. 

Short term work placements and voluntary work with charities in Dublin, Calcutta and Rwanda reinforced my appreciation for the many freedoms and opportunities I enjoy, and the blessing the people of God are worldwide. So let's, ‘’Go into all the world and bring the Good News,” of salvation, hope and God’s love.
