Parish Promoter Profile: Dee Olayinka
Dee Olayinka is one of our Jesuit Missions Parish Promoters.
My name is Dee and I am a parishioner and the parish promoter for St Ignatius Parish, Stamford Hill.
When I saw the parish promoter position advertised, I thought it would be a great opportunity to find out more and learn about the work of Jesuit Missions. I also have the opportunity to keep our parish informed about the role and works of Jesuit Missions.
As there are a few Jesuit parishes in the UK, it makes even more special to connect with the other Jesuit parishes and to learn about the wider Ignatian family.
The work Jesuit Missions is doing around the world is incredible and needed especially during this pandemic. Poor and marginalised communities in the world need support now more than ever.
As a Jesuit community we can make a difference to the lives of others and also be responsible for making a positive impact on the environment.
As a parish promoter being a link between Jesuit Missions and my parish has been a remarkable experience.
