The Revd Luke Pratt appointed to the Drumcliffe Group of Parishes

The Revd Luke Pratt has been appointed as Bishop’s Curate of the Drumcliffe Group of Parishes (Drumcliffe, Lissadell and Munninane) in Co. Sligo. Luke grew up in Ballyhaunis, Co. Mayo, and, after completing his education in Sligo Grammar School in 2001, moved to Belfast to study Music and Film. In early 2014, Luke and his wife, Penelope (Pen or Penny for short) moved to Pen’s hometown of Santiago, Chile, to be closer to her family. Revd. Luke undertook theological training at the Anglican Centre for Pastoral Studies in Santiago and completed his studies in 2021. After that, he served as a lay minister at Providencia Anglican Church in Santiago and was ordained as deacon in June of this year.

Luke and his wife, Pen (who is a lawyer by profession) met in 2011 at the Church of the Resurrection Anglican–Methodist church in South Belfast where Luke was a worship leader and Pen had taken up a role serving with the South American Mission Society (SAMS). They have a seven year old daughter.

Luke will be welcomed to his new position in the Drumcliffe Group at a service on Sunday, 27th August. Speaking of his move to Ireland, Luke says that, among other things ‘he is looking forward to learning more about Ireland and its rich cultural heritage, to making new friends here, and to seeing more people come to know and love the Lord.’ He says his main focus over the coming months will be ‘to get to know the parishioners of Drumcliffe, Lissadell, and Munninane, to orient myself with regard to their gifts and their spiritual needs, and to promote and encourage the strengthening of fellowship and community here.’
