Irish Chaplaincy in London appoints new CEO

16 Apr, 2024 | Church, News, World

The Irish Chaplaincy in London has appointed Ms Marie Norbury (pictured) as its new Chief Executive Officer.  Ms Norbury comes with a breadth of experience gained from working in both the charity and corporate sectors as well as ten years in Catholic education.  Rooted in Catholic Social Teaching, Ms Norbury joins the Irish Chaplaincy from Prison Advice and Care Trust where she has played a key role in raising awareness of the impact of imprisonment on faith communities and has inspired many to get involved to support prisoners and their families.  A part-time sessional prison chaplain, she also has first-hand experience of lives lived in prisons.

Speaking about her appointment, Ms Norbury said “I am delighted and filled with gratitude to be joining the Irish Chaplaincy team as CEO.  I am passionate about social justice and believe strongly in serving those who are vulnerable, excluded or overlooked.  On meeting the team, I was struck by the compassionate approach, rooted in the Gospel, to bringing care, friendship, dignity, and hope to those in need.  It is a great privilege to be given the opportunity to contribute, as CEO, to this vitally important work which builds the Common Good, one person at a time”.

Clare Coffey, Chair of Trustees of the Irish Chaplaincy commented, “Marie was the stand-out candidate following a thorough selection process.  Her authority, authenticity, experience and faith shone through.  We have no doubt that she will be an excellent leader, taking the Irish Chaplaincy forward with compassion and mission.”

Ms Norbury starts in her new role from early May 2024.
