X At Your Service

Sunday, 23 October 2022 - 30 minutes

John Boles had a good job, a steady girlfriend and a love of travel.  But it was his deep Christian faith - and the unshakeable belief that God was calling him to some greater service - that changed the course of his life forever.
Today, Father John Boles is a Roman Catholic priest  and the Director in Britain of the Columban Missionaries - an international order of missionary priests who go into some of the poorest and most deprived countries around the world, and work to establish peace with justice for some of the most marginalised and abused communities.
On this week's programme, Fr John talks about his own life, and about the work of the Columban Missionaries.

Ruth Rice joins us again with another letter from her A to Z of mental wellbeing, and there's music too - including an African American spiritual from the Broughton Boys Choir who are visiting the Island at present.
Find out how you can meet them and listen to their music by listening to the Notice Board at the end of the programme - it's packed with other news of events happening around the Island during the coming week.
Items for the Notice Board can be emailed to me - judithley@manxradio.com
