Tributes paid to former FAM coordinator Niamh

Former Diocese of East Anglia FAM Coordinator, Niamh Moloney, sadly passed away unexpectedly, earlier in September. Antonia Braithwaite pays tribute.

Born in 1985, Niamh obtained a BSc in medical research and then an MA in medical ethics at a pontifical university where she wrote her thesis on NaPro Technology. She thereafter trained as a NaPro practitioner England and worked for NaPro in Ireland.

She was also involved in the Church working full-time as a youth worker for many years.

Niamh was a member of the Marriage and Family Life Commission in our Diocese from 2014-2017, and was the Diocese’s first Fertility Awareness Methods Coordinator. 

Commission members warmly remember her attending Commission meetings with her new-born baby daughter who was always sleeping peacefully! 

Niamh will be missed by her two daughters Ella and Lily, her family and all who knew her. 

Her requiem Mass was held on Monday October 3 at Holy Trinity Catholic Church, Sutton Coldfield.  You can watch a live-stream of it below.
