Fr Simon Penhalagan took over as Chairman of the Bishop's Youth Ministry Liaison Group, NYMO's managing body, in January 2014, having been a member of the group for several years. 
He was ordained in June 2008, and three years ago returned to full time ministry within Sion Catholic Community for Evangelism, of which he has been a member since 1992.  

He hopes that his background there in youth ministry will prove beneficial as he takes up this new appointment.
