Living at St Cuthbert’s this year:
Fr. Liam Kelly is a native of County Galway in the west of Ireland. He joined the Franciscan Order in Dublin and made his novitiate in the Franciscan Friary in Chilworth, Surrey. From there he went to St. Isidore’s Irish Franciscan College in Rome to study Philosophy and Theology. Ordained to the diaconate in Easter 2003 he returned to Dublin studying for an MA in All Hallows College. Since ordination he has lived in Franciscan Communities in Ireland and has worked as a school chaplain in a number of schools including Franciscan College Gormanston and more recently in Marist College, Athlone. His ministry has included Franciscan parish missions and retreats as well as ministry to Franciscans friars in formation both in the novitiate and in post-novitiate communities. This year, Fr Liam is studying for a PhD in Durham University’s Department of Theology and Religion.
