Káren North Training and Development Coordinator for Youth Ministry, Southwark Catholic Youth Service
Káren has been working for the Diocese of Southwark for over six years (initially in adult formation) and for the past three years in Youth Ministry. Her work primarily involves supporting those who are working with young people. Previously Káren has worked in the areas of University Chaplaincy and Parish Pastoral Work. Originally from Leicestershire, she studied Theology and Medieval History at St Mary's Strawberry Hill. This was followed by an MPhil examining the faith and practice of young people in England and Wales from Surrey University. Káren is just about to fill in any spare hours in the day by starting a doctorate focusing on young adult ministry. Any other free time is spent being passionate about life in London, live music, quirky films, golf and lots of good food!
