Chief Executive Officer and Director of Ministry Rev Dr Pat Mollan

Rev Dr Pat Mollan was born in 1944 and educated at Richmond Lodge School and Belfast Royal Academy, where she met her husband Rab.  They married in 1969 in St Columba’s, Knock and have three sons and one daughter, and now have eight  grandchildren.  Pat studied chemistry at Queen’s, gaining a PhD in physical chemistry in 1970.

She came to a living faith in 1984, and gained a 1st class honours BD from Queen’s in 1997.  Pat and Rab were ordained side by side in Dromore Cathedral on 8th June 1997.  She has served in the parishes of Aghalee, Glencraig and the Lecale Group before being commissioned as Deputy Director for Ireland, of the Church’s Ministry of Healing in April 2004.  She is now Director of Ministry, The Church’s Ministry of Healing: The Mount.OR depending on how serious you want to be!

I am married to RAB and we have eight grandchildren.  Come to think of it, I must have been a child bride – but no, we were in the same class at school, and I have to admit to being in my platinum years.  (How come it doesn’t sound as good as the golden years?)

They say that life begins at forty, and I believe it certainly does. I learned to sail and to ski at forty, but it was also the year that I recommitted my life to Christ, so it truly became the start of new life.  There followed the long process of questioning which eventually led to Belfast Bible College, Queen’s University, again,  the Church of Ireland Theological College, and then ordination in 1997.  I have served as curate in the parishes of Aghalee, Glencraig and Lecale before moving into the Healing Ministry, which has been a long term interest.  My other life interest is mission.

I both sailed and skied, doing both for my own amusement, and unfortunately everyone else’s!
