The Leap Of Faith

On the Leap of Faith this week; six married men were ordained as Permanent Deacons in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Cloyne on Sunday 24 September this year. We meet the six men, Garrett Cody, Damian McCabe, Eddie Mulhare, John Nestor, Brian Williams and Peter Gurbal who talk about their new roles, the challenges they face in living their faith publicly and their expectations for the future of the Catholic Church in their Diocese.  

As married men and fathers, with regular jobs to hold down they talk about how their relationships with work colleagues and neighbours have changed and how they feel optimistic about their individual callings to holy orders.

About the Show

In a programme for people of all faiths and none, Michael talks with those whose life experiences cause them to call on their beliefs, as he seeks to discover what religion does for people - and occasionally to them.

With regular updates from across the world’s faiths and from those that hold them, this will be a thought-provoking 30 minutes of radio. Each week the programme will hear from people about how they access their ‘spiritual intelligence’ at different times in their lives.

Michael Comyn has worked in radio on and off for over 30 years, reading news at lunchtime on his local radio station in Louth while still at secondary school.  A short hiatus followed while he got a "proper" job working in communications training before he found himself back on RTÉ Radio in 1999 as the first voice on RTÉ lyric fm. He kept in touch with radio by occasionally filling in on Playback, Risin’ Time and Late Date, followed by a brief period presenting a talk show on commercial radio in Dublin.
