Fitzroy-Clonard Fellowship


The Fellowship was established in 1981 as a result of a friendship between Rev Ken Newell and Fr Christopher McCarthy of Clonard Monastery in West Belfast. From 1983 until his death in 2015, Fr Gerry Reynolds gave leadership on the Clonard side. Pictured are Gerry and Ken when they received the Pax Christi International Peace Award in 1999 on behalf of the Fitzroy - Clonard Fellowship for 'its exemplary grass-roots peacemaking work in Belfast'.
The aim of the Fellowship is to promote mutual understanding, respect and a common witness between people from various Christian traditions in Northern Ireland through our programmes, friendships and activities.
