Margaret Healion is a Diocesan Reader who has served in Zion Parish since being commissioned in 2015.
Margaret holds degrees in Design & Communications and in Philosophy, and a Diploma in Professional Ministry. She worked in Advertising for over twenty-five years, many of those as Creative Director of a large agency. She paints, reads, loves to travel and has co-authored a book on Canadian Grizzlies with her husband, photographer David Campbell.
After returning to college to study Philosophy in 2005, Margaret worked in the Harold’s Cross Hospice as a volunteer, which led to her calling to serve in Lay Ministry. “Being fortunate to be able to spend more time with my father toward the end of his life had a profound effect on my view of everything. I feel very lucky to have been found, so to speak, and love the work I do in and for Zion Parish”.
“I enjoy looking after the Parish Registers, helping to arrange the big moments in people’s lives and organising the charity projects we, as a church family become involved in. As Reader I particularly enjoy leading prayer and occasionally preaching. If I were to think of one word that informs my ministry it would be inclusion. Something I am grateful to have benefitted from here at Zion Church”.
If you need to contact Margaret please send an email to the Parish Office, firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message with the Parish Administrator, Deirdre Hoey.
You will also find Margaret in church at 10.30am on Sundays.
