New UCC chaplains named

Two new chaplains have been appointed to University College Cork (UCC) as part of an agreement between the college and the Diocese of Cork and Ross.

Nathan Williams and Brett Cavanaugh, both graduates of the University of Notre Dame in the US, will take up their positions at the beginning of the upcoming academic year, working alongside Fr Marius O’Reilly.

A spokesperson for the diocese confirmed to The Irish Catholic in June that UCC would provide the diocese with an annual subvention and the diocese in turn would provide three full-time chaplains to the university.
