FLM in the Diocese of Leeds a brief history:
Family Life Ministry was introduced to the Diocese of Leeds by Bishop David Konstant under the guidance of Fr John Nunan. The first FLM Coordinator was Sr Anne Conway. When Sr Anne left in 2002 Breda Theakston was given the role. FLM then had its own vicariate under Fr Donal Lucey.
In 2004 Bishop Arthur Roche moved FLM to the Vicariate for Christian Life.
In 2010 it became part of the Vicariate for Evangelisation.
From 1st May 2013 the team was reduced to one person (Breda) working day a week on marriage preparation.
From 1st July 2015, at the request of Bishop Marcus, Breda offers practical parenting support and training for parents and families wishing to grow and sustain their loving family relatonships.
The Family Life Ministry office is based in Headingley, Leeds, at the Diocesan Pastoral Centre, Hinsley Hall, a beautiful site about 2 miles from Leeds city centre http://www.hinsley-hall.co.uk/location.html
