A new appointment
In February 2014, Rev. Chris Mulherin was appointed one day per week to the role of Executive Project Officer for ISCAST. Chris says:
In an increasingly globalised secular scientific culture the cutting edge of Christian engagement is the conversation about science and faith.

Dear Members and Friends of ISCAST,
Your response to my last email asking that we "blitz" the target to raise $35k in order to pay Chris Mulherin's salary as the ISCAST Executive Project Officer has been breathtaking. Thank you all so much.
We have now achieved the target and are well placed to continue his employment with us next year.
ISCAST Fellow Michael Wong will be speaking at the "Spirituality and Mental Health Conference" in Hong Kong in January 2015. He will be one of the keynote speakers. His topic will be "The Role of Hermeneutics in the Dialogue Between Psychiatry and Spirituality".
Through Michael, ISCAST is pleased to support the conference run by the Alliance Holistic Care Centre (www.allianceholistic.com.hk)
