Brian keen to add his Voice

Young’s Brian Hislop is such a fan of the Catholic Voice, that as soon as he heard the call out for Catholic Voice Ambassadors, he didn’t hesitate to volunteer.

“Someone told me about it, and I already read the Voice every month so I thought I’d like to get involved,” he said.

Already an acolyte, part of the Parish Liturgy Team and assisting with parish banking, Brian believed the Ambassador role wouldn’t take up much time but would be beneficial to the parish.

“There’s really not a lot involved in it, but I think it’s very useful,” he said.

“I see the role as promoting the paper and website, which also promotes our own stories.

“On the first Sunday of each month I’ll hand out the new edition of the Voice to parishioners at Mass, introducing myself to them and letting them know some of the stories that are in it.

“And I’ll let the parishioners know that if they have a story that they think others might be interested in, they can either let me know and I’ll pass it on, or they can contact the Voice directly.”

Brian said he believes the Catholic Voice is well-read within the Young Parish.

“If you look at the last edition, there are only eight copies left,” he said.

“I think it’s a good mix of articles and opinion pieces and pretty relevant all around.”
