Spotlight | Nick Hutchinson

“After being given a prognosis of two years regarding cancer, Nicholas set about writing prayers for his own use: prayers that would reflect his journey, prayers to which he would often return.”

Nick Hutchinson is one of our most prolific writers and a good friend. He has been fighting Cancer for as long as I have known him but has never let it stop him doing what he loves most, helping others. He is a real inspiration.

Nick’s most popular selection, Praying Each day of the Year, is a collection of stories, reflections and prayers that is used across the globe. It is very popular among teachers and other busy individuals who are looking for ready-made resources to help with acts of worship in and out of school or the parish. Nick’s prayers are all beautifully written and perfectly suited to any occasion or environment.

However it isn’t his work that I wish to put in the spotlight, but Nick himself. As an author, Nick has proven himself more than capable of producing wonderful works of prayer and reflection that can be used anywhere, but as a man he has gone so much further. Whilst battling Cancer for so many years he has managed to touch the lives of so many, not just through his work but also through his generosity. Nick has provided his prayers to hospitals and prisons completely free for many years and, through his work as a De La Salle Brother he has spread his good will across the world community.

As an individual who has worked tirelessly through adversity I believe he deserves to be in the Spotlight.
