Comments on our Volunteers - Thank you!

Thank you to Volunteers - The volunteers were polite and ever-ready to guide and help anyone who approached them. (Fr. George - India)

Full marks to the Volunteers who did a superb job. They were kind, helpful, and knew what to do. (Bishop Martin Drennan)

The army of volunteers was most impressive and they were most patient and helpful to everyone. (Sr. M K)

There were many stars and I thought in particular that the Volunteers shone particularly brightly. (Martin - Belfast)

We had a full house and the technician and volunteers were very helpful on the night.

The success is due in no small measure to you and your wonderful team of volunteers. (Sr. M H)

Thank you also for the excellent work of the volunteers, their smile and their availability. (Prof. A H – Belgium)

The unfailing friendliness and generosity with their time and expertise of the staff and volunteers at the IEC were, along with the most impressive liturgies of the Eucharist, surely the dynamic source of that great Congress (Fr. B P – Australia)

It was a privileged to be part of such a vibrant and joyful expression of our common faith. The work done by the volunteers in a very Irish friendly way was really exceptional (Bro. D F)

The whole congress was so well organised. I do not know how you all did it. Certainly the Spirit was moving among us. I deeply appreciate all the work of the volunteers. All great things in history happened because of volunteers. (Sr. T A)

The crowds were there, the speakers were well listened to, there were excellent liturgies, and there was an outstanding and friendly welcome in every possible way given by those thousands of volunteers who fulfilled an outstandingly positive role in ensuring that everything was a success! With my kind regards, good wishes and renewed and very sincere thanks to you and to all of your close collaborators, especially the volunteers! (Cardinal Keith O’Brien, Edinburgh)

The good humour of the volunteers even in times of crowd management sent ripples of friendliness among all groups and no one felt isolated. It was ‘Eucharistic’ in every sense and we hope repercussions will follow around the country in some way. (Mary & Catherine)

The volunteers were outstanding and helpful in all cases (Susan)

Compliments to all the Volunteers who were most helpful (Fr. J W) 

I want to express to each member of the staff of IEC20 12, the volunteers, and all concerned, my deepest gratitude and commendation for the work you did in preparation for, and during the congress. (Cardinal Sean Brady)

Your staff was wonderful, enthusiastic and very professional .... And may I compliment the Volunteers on the ground during the events .... they were superb. (T H – Cork)

As well as the detailed attention given to the liturgies, talks, workshops and exhibitions, there was one outstanding feature we would like to mention and that is, the work of the volunteers. They were well trained and we found them so courteous and approachable at all times. (Veronica & Denise)

The volunteers were terrific and I know nothing runs as smoothly as last week did,  without an enormous amount of preparation and hard work beforehand. (CO’R Cabra)

The response to the exhibition was marvellous but we couldn't have kept it going without you and the IEC volunteers. (MM – CL)

The volunteers were exceptional in their friendliness and their desire to be of assistance.  (NK Belfast)

My father had a wonderful day. We were treated like VIPs, escorted to our suite, given lunch and then we had seats “at ring side”. The team in the suite couldn’t do enough and looked after any and all requests from the pilgrims with patience and kindness. (JC)

Your team of volunteers were particularly magnificent (Bishop Brendan Kelly, Achonry)
