The National Association of Healthcare Chaplains (NAHC) held its 40th anniversary celebrations at The Rose Hotel in Tralee earlier this month.

The theme of this year’s conference was ‘Rooted in History: Growing in Hope’.

The 42 delegates were delighted to have their first in-person gathering since before COVID and they were joined by Bishop Ray Browne, Bishop Michael Burrows, and Bishop Michael Router, who is the Chairperson of the Irish Episcopal Council for Healthcare.

One of the founding members of the NAHC, Fr John Carroll, joined them from Sligo.

Chairperson of the NAHC is Dr Margaret Naughton, a Chaplin at the University Hospital Kerry (UHK).

She described it as ‘a proud and honoured’ occasion to bring chaplaincy colleagues from around the country to the Kingdom.

“We were ably guided on the day by Dr Aoife McGrath, Maynooth, who led us on a journey of reflection and transformation,” said Ms Naughton.

“It was an experience to savour and I am beyond delighted to have had the opportunity to showcase what Kerry has to offer in terms of its hospitality and warm welcome to my colleagues, who came from the four corners of Ireland,” she added.
