psexton_01Peter Sexton SJ was given a warm official welcome to his post as Catholic Chaplain in the ecumenical chaplaincy in Trinity College Dublin, last Thursday, 22 Oct ,’09. Vespers was sung in his  honour in the college Chapel, an apt greeting as Peter himself has led the singing by  manys a church congregation in his day. His enthusiasm and inspiration as he did so was often remarked upon. As a Jesuit, Peter spent time on mission in Africa, he also worked in Belvedere  College and before this most recent appointment he gave many years service as Spiritual father to the pupils of Clongowes Wood College in Naas. He is pictured here leading the liturgy and singing in Gonzaga College when Fr General Adodfo Nicolás addressed Jesuits and their colleagues on his first visit to Ireland in September ’09.
