The Team

The team is based at the Centre for Youth Ministry and has ultimate responsibility for the Westminster Youth Ministry strategy; both in terms of development and delivery.

Fr Mark Walker | Diocesan Youth Chaplain

Fr Mark is the youth chaplain for the diocese. Originally from Harpenden, in Hertfordshire, the idea of priesthood first entered his mind whilst altar serving. So, after graduating with a history degree from the University of Durham, he applied to the seminary, was accepted and spent six years in formation at Allen Hall.

Fr David Burke | Assistant Youth Chaplain

Fr David has been the assistant youth chaplain for the diocese since shortly after his ordination in 2015. Before becoming a priest he was the director of youth ministry and originally comes from Coventry. He enjoys watching the football and spending time with his friends.

Phil Ross | Director of Youth Ministry

Phil is the Director of Youth Ministry for the Diocese of Westminster. He’s been married for 25 years to his lovely wife, Ann, and have two wonderful children: Frances, and Andrew. He’s a passionate supporter of Doncaster Rovers and enjoy walking with the family dogs, Monty and Henry; the walks are often an opportunity to console himself after another Saturday footballing tragedy!

James Kelliher | Communications and Events Coordinator

James is the Communications and Events Coordinator for youth in the Diocese of Westminster. He previously lived and worked in Brazil as the English Language Coordinator for World Youth Day 2013 in Rio de Janeiro. James has a BSc in Computer Science and an MSc in Development Management, and has produced books for the last three World Youth Days, in Madrid, Rio de Janeiro and Krakow.

Rebekah Curran | Youth Support Team Leader

Rebekah leads the team based at the Centre for Youth Ministry and has worked at the CYM since March 2013. She is a lover of adventures, and finding that saying ‘yes’ to the Lord is the biggest of adventures. Also a lover of Geography, buttons, travelling and embarrassing dancing in public.

Callum Moore | Youth Support Team

Callum is an ex-professional mixed martial artist now working in the parish support team since August 2015. He has worked across England and Wales in youth ministry and has a strong devotion to Mary and the Eucharist. He enjoys spending his spare time practising martial arts, watching movies, going on hikes and hanging out with friends.

Dominic Cunliffe | Youth Support Team

Dominic has been a member of the parish support team since October 2016. He has been involved with youth ministry in a range of areas including on the road mission with Youth 2000 and confirmation groups. He is also a worship leader and a prolific singer-songwriter.
