"Dynamic Irishman Mark Dunwoody of County Cork, Ireland, will soon leave the Emerald Isle for Quebec and the position of youth ministry consultant to the diocese of Montreal. A native of Antrim in Northern Ireland, Dunwoody has served for the past six years as youth officer for the diocese of Coke, Cloyne and Ross in Eire. Now he's more than ready to tackle the rigours of youth ministry in a cold climate. 'The presenting challenges are mostly the same for every church community in most parts of the world, in that we now have to earn a right to be heard in today's society', Dunwoody says." "What prompted Dunwoody to leave the mists of Ireland for the snows of Montreal ? 'My discussions with the folk in the diocese impressed me, as they have a vision and a plan', he says. 'Those I met during my visit there clearly want to listen, respond and take risks to serve the needs of communities in the diocese'." "Dunwoody will arrive in Montreal in May , followed in July by his wife Diane, and his three sons, Gareth, Ricky and Dylan".
