    David Lyle

    David Lyle is well known in Northern Ireland. He has over 30 years experience in researching, managing and creating advertising.

    David is a weekly church attendee. His day to day world is about creating advertisements with a message that real danger exists, real people are affected by it and real lives are destroyed by it but in his own life David has been left shattered by the death of his own son Matthew who died from a drug overdose. We hear how David handled Matthew’s death from a faith perspective?

    Sister Paschal

    Our Lady’s and St. Michael’s Monastery on Belfast’s Cliftonville Road is home to the Poor Clare Order of Nuns. The nuns observe a strict daily routine has remained relatively unchanged since the 1200s. Dedicating their life to prayer, each Sister takes vows of poverty, chastity, obedience and enclosure.

    Six days a week members of the public can come to the monastery and talk with the Sisters through a metal grill about their problems or with prayer requests. Our visit to the monastery allows us to observe life inside an enclosed religious order and to witness the human side of their contemplative life.

    As a pioneer for improved deaf family dynamics and language development in Northern Ireland Susan developed a reputation for her down to dearth passion for communication. More recently she has devoted her considerable energy to worldwide research into complementary therapies to treat depression. This follows the tragedy of losing her husband.
