Mark Chamberlain

Fr Mark ChamberlainOne of the delightful surprises of life is that the sacred is always with us. Beneath conversations, lectures, arrivals, flats, meals, fun, tears and everything else, lurks the sacred.

I am Mark Chamberlain. I have been a priest in the Diocese of Dunedin for more than 20 years. I love this ministry. It has been a rich time of parish and school ministry, lecturing and spiritual direction, postgraduate studies and psychotherapy training, pastoral care and living life fully. A consistent companion has been a sense of the sacred.

One of my own lecturers, Fr Gerry Fitzgerald, frequently remarked that "Life is too brief to drink bad wine!" - Gerry was right. Life is a precious gift and we are all invited to appreciate it. I am pleased to be the Catholic University Chaplain. I look forward to meeting you, either around campus or at Holy Name Mass on a Sunday evening (7 pm). I want to offer thanks to our former Chaplain, Br Vincent Ives cfc. Thanks Vince for your dedication.
