Rev Mike Buchanan, currently serving in Navan with Canon John Clarke, talks about his faith journey as well as his call to ordained ministry after a very varied career as a Garda officer.

Mike, recently ordained to serve as a deacon in the Navan Union of Parishes, chats about how a sense of community service runs through his ministry and draws on his 31-year career in policing with An Garda Síochána at home and the UN’s peace-keepers in Cyprus.
