of St Winin's, Kilwinning
St Palladius', Dalry

History is repeating itself, but in reverse... Dalry is now being serviced by Kilwinning. The linked Parishes are served by two priests, Fr Matt McManus (ordained 1965) and Fr Pat Lawson (ordained 1996)
Fr Matt has been in the Parish since 1986. As well as his parish duties, he is a Director of Ayrshire and Arran Health Board, Chair of the Ethics Committee of Ayrshire and Arran Primary Care NHS Trust, a member of North Ayrshire Educational Services Committee and a Director of Minerva Housing - an association which provides houses and care packages for people with learning difficulties.  
Fr Matt McManus
Fr Pat is recently arrived from a period of parish ministry in America. He is a qualified Social Worker, having managed various residential homes, and a State Registered Nurse with wide experience in theatre nursing in Scotland and America. Ordained by Bishop Taylor for this Diocese, Pat had a few temporary appointments before settling in Kilwinning this year. With Fr Matt he provides chaplaincy services to St Winning's Primary School, St Luke's Primary School and St Palladius' Primary School as well as assisting the lay chaplaincy team at St Michael's Academy.
