Chaplaincy: Bangor

Ep 4 – Broadcasts on March 11th (Saturday) at 8:00pm, March 13th (Monday) at 5pm, and March 16th (Thursday) at 12:30am

On this episode we talked about what happens when we don’t find answers to our questions or, indeed, answers that we don’t like both in science and our journeys of faith. What can our witness as Catholics be in these situations?



Our panel of speakers included Dr Elizabeth Lam and Dr Wollis Vas and a student from the chaplaincy, Isaac.


Dr Elizabeth Lam

Elizabeth is currently a research and development scientist working in a diagnostic medical device company in Cambridge. She obtained her PhD in the field of computational and inorganic chemistry from The University of Hong Kong. Since then, she has been working in industries spanning from analytical laboratory services to new product development. Her passion for connecting science with daily life has prompted her to complete a master’s degree in Science Communication, where she has revitalized a blog, Chembites, to digest abstract chemistry journals into simpler language. Attracted by Ignatian Spirituality, she is a permanent committed member (PCM) of the Christian Life Community (CLC). She is also a columnist for a Canton-Catholic magazine in London.

Dr Wollis Vas

Wollis is a Product Manager in the life science and Biotechnology sectors. He has always marvelled at the complexities of human biology and its impact on human health, which he explored during his doctoral studies at UCL. He is keen to understand the underlying philosophical principles of the scientific method, and so explores prominent Catholic teachings on the topic. He enjoys interacting with others who are also on the journey of understanding the synchronicity between science and faith.

Isaac is a Post-Doctoral Research Officer in the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering
